Boeing and others would do this if they could. Shut down, layoff, re-name, re-hire non-union for min wage but, they can’t so they move production facilities to union free districts in other states. Fuck them.

"Ricketts, who founded TD Ameritrade, donated more than $1 million to President Trump’s campaign after he originally sought to prevent his nomination during the primaries. Trump targeted Ricketts on Twitter before Ricketts offered his support.
“I hear the Rickets (sic) family, who own the Chicago Cubs, are secretly spending $’s against me. They better be careful, they have a lot to hide!” Trump tweeted in February 2016.
Trump nominated Joe’s son, Todd, as deputy commerce secretary, though he eventually declined the post." TheHill
