Trump has the power to tell companies such as Siemens to keep plants open. All he would have to do is sign an executive order
This week, days before Christmas, I will clock into my good, union job one last time.
I spent 31 years working on machines that make parts for steam turbines at the Siemens factory in Burlington, Iowa, the oldest continuously operating, manufacturing facility west of the Mississippi. When our plant closes its doors on Friday, we will be saying goodbye to another factory that made America great. And the unfortunate truth is that the death of our factory and other Siemens-owned facilities across the United States are the result of another damned Donald Trump lie.
