Staff members just discovered why we have a sign up that states "No Jewlery Allowed" when working with battery cells.

Our Philosophy On This Issue
With our philosophy and work
ethic we have, in the first quarter of 2007, officially taken a US government
supplier contract order from a
Chinese factory for 1000 battery packs per month using non-Chinese battery cells. This was NO small task but all statistics above placed us in
this position. There will never be a $35.00 per hour job in our facility.
Since leaving Wal-Mart I have
watched our country and years ago I myself was in the job market. US
citizens trying to keep up with the Jones family have out priced themselves.
US companies made a discovery that people in other countries could be trained to
do the same jobs for substantially less income. They left the US work
force and they are not coming back. US companies and @#$* unions do not care if the people
are paid unfairly or even if they use slave labor. But both the US
companies, @#$* unions, and the employee became unreasonable, yes a relative position, but I
and my staff have jobs.
I see empty factories and
warehouses everywhere that I go and these realtors are still sitting on them
with enormous sell prices. They could be renovated to incubator
business for the backbone of America but are not. I wish I had the money
to invest in renovating these facilities for true US Small Business as well as
Start up businesses. And by the way, when I mention Small Business, I am
not talking about GWB's 6.5 million dollar version.
The point is that our philosophy
here at Rathbone Energy keeps jobs in America and even though we are not
stealing oil and erasing American lives we expect your support if you are a
"True Blood and Guts Amaracan".
Thank you to Tennessee
Partisan Politicians for blocking two 500 million dollar grants to build
an EV battery cell manufacturing and R&D facility and a Rare earth
Materials Refining Facility in East Tennessee. All so our elected
President would not receive credit for 2200 plus skilled jobs in East
Tennessee not including the spin-off tier 1, 2 and 3 industry.
