Friday should have been the end of the line for hundreds of AMR maintenance facility employees in Fort Worth. However, the company is not ready to say goodbye to those workers.
The maker of foosball and air hockey is back. It isn’t something you hear about very often but a North Texas company decided to save money by moving its operations from Mexico back to the United States and North Texas.
Texas A&M University has already received $40 million by outsourcing 1,000 food and other service jobs to Compass Group USA, Inc. and could save millions more over the contract’s 10-year life.
Auto manufacturing is back in America – especially in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania because President Obama made the politically risky decision to bailout the auto industry after bailing out the banks. It was a decision that worked. Obama was right, Romney was wrong. So Romney is now in full lying mode. He is trying to retroactively re-write the wrongs in his writings.

Mitt Romney and Bain Capital purchased a factory in China that took on the demand from outsourcing from other US companies.

The cost cutting can begin now for American Airlines. A judge signed off today on deals with flight attendants, and the group representing maintenance workers, bag handlers and other work groups.
W. Mitt Romney’s campaign is struggling to get some simple facts straight. When did he leave Bain? Why is his signature on new business documents in 2002 if he “retroactively retired” in 1999? Why is the sworn testimony he provided at his 2002 ballot access hearing in Massachusetts in conflict with his financial disclosure documents?
When it comes to the candidates’ pasts, Obama – not Romney – should be on the defensive. Obviously, questions about Obama have been unanswered for a longer period of time than Romney’s.
Down to the trademark “W”, W. Mitt Romney is literally the second coming of the George W. Bush: the economic strategy that led to the worst American economy since the Great Depression and the Bush legacy of secrecy in the face of questions from the American public.
