Conservative Hypocrisy on Nordex


A German company, Nordex, is expanding—in Jonesboro, Arkansas. The company plans to hire up to 700 Americans at above-average wages. I haven’t heard any conservatives denounce the action of Nordex. Yet, when a US company builds a plant in Germany and hires German workers, some conservatives go ballistic and call on the US government to “do something” to keep jobs in the US—and I don’t mean just “do something” like cut taxes and regulations that hamper American businesses—while they denounce foreign direct investment, outsourcing, and even imports.
