Another workforce lost to China, a name we will all recoginize is moving to china to make products, the Vice-Grip made in Nebraska for 80 years is shutting down;

Gary Oden has known for weeks that the plant where he has spent the last 19 years helping build Vise-Grips, one of Nebraska's most famous products, would be shutting down.

But he still wasn't completely prepared for the meeting at 5:30 Wednesday morning.
He and other employees were officially told the bad news, the kind that has stung workers in upper Midwestern states for years but is relatively uncommon in Nebraska: The DeWitt plant is shutting down so operations can be moved to China.

    This is just another example of our jobs going overseas B.,another example of the do nothing approach to the economy of this country, I set through a speech tonight by John McCain who is the Republican nominee that was high on biography and low on substance.

    We are losing the fight for American priority, how can you protect families if the family has no job of a decent wage? This country is getting behind, we can not continue giving companies tax breaks for sending our jobs overseas.
