Their manufacturing would move, their brain trust would remain.

Only 300 production workers would move, the 700 or so white collar would remain. Sounds like it's just a ploy though to get the union to negotiate wage reductions.

Dematic has facilities in Germany and Italy. Germany has 29 mandatory PAID days off a year. Italy has 32 mandatory PAID days off a year. The United States has ZERO mandatory paid days off a year. Germany also has paid maternity and paternity leave for parents. The US has zero. Yet, somehow, operations in those countries can be profitable but we're fed the same corporate BS that supposedly "the US is too hard to make money in." Get real. 

 

Dematic also operates in a bunch of other countries with very nice employee benefits that are state mandated.

Anybody who swallows this provably false rhetoric has my sympathies.

Monterrey appears to be the new boom town.

The area around Monterrey, and specifically Saltillo and Ramos on the other side of the mountain have been automotive/manufacturing hotbeds since NAFTA really.

Sounds like someone else spent the opening day of Where to Invade Next in the theater. Good film.

Anyone know how Dematic's stock price has been doing lately? A lot of times offshoring/Mexico-izing jobs and layoffs are used to inflate a company's stock value. It was a really big deal back in the 80's and 90's, when every week another company would announced massive layoffs and their stocks would go up.
