Since 60% of their sales are abroad, I'd bet 50% of their employees are non-US. That's got to be tens of thousands of people.
What is it that John Kerry calls American companies that outsource jobs overseas? Oh yeah ... I remember. They are "Benedict Arnolds." The CEOs of these companies are "Benedict Arnold CEOs." Very clever. That language plays well with the lower IQs of those who vote Democratic. Now .. what about H.J. Heinz? That's the company that John Kerry's wife owns. They have 79 factories where actual people work. Of those 79 factories ... 57 of them are overseas ... with overseas workers. Do you think John Kerry calls his wife a "Benedict Arnold heiress?"
I sent this to a dem. co-worker and he replied that she doesn't control the company and her dead former Republican Senator husband is responsible for the outsourcing. Just what is Te-ray-za's role in Heinz today?
I found a dollar store in Portland, Oregon that sells Heinz food products for only a dollar. Why pay full retail price for a product that was made overseas? Never again will I go to a supermarket and pay the shelf-price. Never again!
F'Heinz, Heinz Foundations, and Heinz Ketchup Boy!
As such she controls the money doled out by the Vira Heinze Endowment foundation and the Howard Heinz Endowment foundation.
But who is the Tides Center? Known as the Tides Center for Pennsylvania, formerly the Tides Center for Western Pennsylvania, it is none other than a creation of the Tides Foundation and Center, headquartered in San Francisco, and two Pennsylvania-based foundations -- the Vira Heinz Endowment and the Howard Heinz Endowment-- chaired by Teresa Heinz Kerry, heir to the Heinz food company fortune and wife of Democrat presidential contender Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts.
I worked for Heinz briefly after graduation from Duke University Fuqua School of Busioness (MBA). Subsequently, I traveled internationally as a Merchant Banker. I would give most anything I had to re-enter any business with an international flavor.
In fact, I am currently looking at several companies to acquire/invest in that source their products overseas. I make no apologies for the fact that certain prodcuts simply cannot be made in the US for a price that Wally-world customers want to pay.
The myopic narrow-minded nimwits simply amaze me.
Go ahead, flame away. Remember, I will not and do not make no apologies for my views. I am a business person that puts my own money on the line. I'm not in life to be a charity.
