Two pieces of news last week were observed by me. One was that Obama told us that the nation was in good economic condition, and the second, our local news shocked us about the future loss of jobs due to changes at Caterpillar and Shaw Industries.
Now one seems to be contrary to the other. As a matter of fact, locally one is a bold-faced lie. We, the citizens, should not be shocked by this because just about everything we pick up in Walmart is stamped "made in China."
Previously, people could have gone for jobs at Belden cord plant, Wrangler Blue Bell or Fruit of the Loom, etc. By the way, strangely, Fruit of the Loom and Shaw Industries were both acquired by Warren Buffet, the man who causes evaporation of more jobs.
