You hear politicians talk about creating jobs and helping the economy. They speak in generalities, right? Well here’s a specific example of how politicians ruin jobs and hurt the small businesses that create them.
The Rhode Island Economic Development Committee and the Chaffee Center have rolled out the red carpet for a box company. It’s located in El Salvador. They hope it will produce boxes on the cheap. They didn’t get the memo that a box company already exists in the state.
Taylor Box operates in Warren, Rhode Island. It employs 35 people. It makes boxes. You may know it from the packaging for Swiss Army knives. A new box company would be a direct competitor. Jobs would be lost to a foreign company.
Taylor Box is owned by Dan Shedd. Listen to his discussion with Helen Glover on the Helen Glover Show. You can’t make this stuff up.
