Harley Davidson Opposes Tariffs.... What??????
« on: March 08, 2018, 03:42:01 PM »
Harley Davidson opposes president Trump's job saving Tariffs on imported steel and aluminum. View the article here: Harley-Davidson Warns Against Trumpís Tariffs While Laying Off American Manufacturing Workers

Back in 1983 tariffs helped save Harley Davidson from going out of business when cheaper and better performing Japanese motorcycles were flooding the market. Since then Harley Davidson has become the biggest motorcycle manufacturer in the United States..

It shouldn't come as a surprise that the Harley Davidson of today is less concerned about American jobs. Harley Davidson now manufactures the Harley Davidson Street model motorcycles in India, and Harley Davidson started outsourcing their IT department in 2012 to foreign national H-1B visa holders and workers in India, and this caused many Harley Davidson IT workers to lose their jobs.



I certainly hope President Trump doesn't allow Harley Davidson's anti tariff position to influence his decision to place tariffs on imported steel and aluminum. Good American jobs are important and good for the American people and the nation. Big corporations seem to only care about profit and will support the shortest path that leads them to the most riches. Remember what Thomas Jefferson said about merchants: "Merchants have no country. The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains."
