    Thanks to Donald Trump's trade policy, Harley Davidson joins a fast growing group on American companies including Boeing, IBM, Merck, Honeywell, General Electric, General Motors and many others that have recently stepped up their efforts to offshore jobs at a record pace.


    Is this how Donald Trump makes America great again??

    And of course Donald will blame the companies.

    Surprised that Harley-Davidson, of all companies,
    would be the first to wave the White Flag. I fought
    hard for them and ultimately they will not pay tariffs
    selling into the E.U., which has hurt us badly on trade,
    down $151 Billion. Taxes just a Harley excuse - be patient!


    Harley are just doing what is best for their business and their investors.
    That's the way it works Donald.

    The trade war is no doubt at least partially to blame, but the US job market is so hot right now, it's inevitable that companies would be looking to places in which there are more available candidates in weaker bargaining position.

    I was reading this article yesterday about the incredible position employees are in right now.

    There are many things to bash Trump about, but the job market is hardly one of them.

    SH76 - You may be missing something. These jobs going overseas from Boeing, Honeywell, IBM etc. are good paying jobs. I don't think replacing a $30.00/hr job with a $15.00 - $20.00/hr job is necessarily a good thing. This is not just a matter of how many jobs are available. All jobs are not created equal, so with all due respect, I think a little bashing is in order here.

    no mchill, YOU are missing something. Jobs growth in the US is setting records.
