Komax Solar lays off 33 workers

Quote:Mike Smeltzer with the Manufacturers Association said there two main reasons for the job losses are international competition from China and a decrease in demand for solar panels.

...and Mr. Smeltzer, how do we fix that? Well first thing would be to fix the uneven trade tariffs between the US and other countries. It shouldn't be cheaper for a country that's thousands of miles away effectively using slave labor to import products into the States.

Don't care who is in office, something needs to be done about importing into the US to bring production back here.

How many solar companies have gone under now, anyone keeping track?

Companies go in and out of business everyday. The despicable part of this is the Oddministration funneling OUR MONEY to them, with the full knowledge there is NO BUSINESS. The goal is simply the TOTAL CORRUPT rewarding of their DONORS who funnel the money right back to his Campaign.
There's no way that his donors are reaching into their own pockets to finance this POS. It's "recycling."

I'll repeat that I hope Mitt appoints Issa Attorney General and goes after these traitors as he should.

American solar companies are probably not competitive because of the cost of American regulations and because of the cost of US labor. IOW, because of the left.

Solar companies are not competitive because it is no replacement for oil and gas. Especially for the price. Thus the push by OMao and Stephen Chu to get gas and oil and coal prices as high as possible. Their own words.

Oil is the fuel of freedom and the last thing OMao wants is for us to have the freedom we have had.

They are Anti-American Way zealots and their goal is to tear American Prosperity and power down......THEY HAVE EXCELLED AT IT.

Personally I think solar is a good idea, BUT the return on investment is too long without subsidies from the government.

It may be a "good idea" but
A. It cannot do anywhere close to what Oil does. When it can power a 747 at the same price, even higher for the clean benefit, I'm in. NEVER happen

B. They can't even sustain business for even a few months even with MULTI $B handouts. There is no demand.
Lot's of good, not economically feasible ideas out there, but not run by OMao donors it appears

C. When it can do those things that oil does, the private sector will be all over it.

Yep...he's doing it on purpose. All of this nonsense with cap and trade and the deliberate driving up of prices is by design, and 100% intentional.

True that. It's all to get deeper and deeper into OUR paychecks.
