Subject: Made In Mexico

Shortly after reading the following e-mail content, I happened to look
at the label of a jar of Heinz sandwich slice pickles. Yep....Made in
Mexico"

Check some of your Heinz products. "Sen. John Kerry keeps talking about
U.S. corporations leaving this country and setting up shop in foreign
countries, taking thousands of jobs with them. He is right, because that has
happened.

However, he is trying to blame it on George W. Bush. As far as I know,Bush has not moved one factory out of this country because he is not the owner of a single factory.

That cannot be said about Kerry and his wife, Teresa Heinz-Kerry.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Kerry's own 32 factories in Europe and 18 in Asia and the Pacific. In addition, their company, the Heinz Company, leases four factories in Europe and four in Asia. Also, they own 27 factories in North America, some of which are in Mexico and the Caribbean. 80% of Heinz products are made overseas.

I wonder how many hundreds of American workers lost their jobs when
these plants relocated in foreign countries. I also wonder if the workers
in Mexico and Asia are paid the same wages and benefits as workers in the United States.

Of course they're not. However, Kerry demands that other companies that
relocate should pay the same benefits they did in the U.S. Why does he
not demand this of the Heinz Company, since he is married to the owner? If Kerry is elected, will he and his wife close all those foreign factories and bring all those jobs back to America? Of course they won't. They're making millions off that cheap labor.

If I'm not mistaken I dont think she has any control over where the factories are.

She only apparently owns 4% of the company plus this isnt the kind of outsourcing that they are talking about.

Ransom is correct.

Theresa Heinz :barf: actually has nothing to do with the Heinz company. The only relation she has to the company is that her deceased husband, Sen. John Heinz (R) was one of the heirs to that company.

When he died, he left her a hefty trust fund, which is where her money comes from.

Since that point in time however, she has had nothing to do with Heinz.

Also, the Heinz company is actually a big contributor to the GOP.

Well, it seems that Richard Chaney has to have at least 100% of the shares of Halliburton. The Dems tell you so. He is only Vice-President to make money.

What scares me is not G.W. Bush, coming in the presidency as a millionaire, but the Clintons, coming in the governorship of Arkansaw with less than $100,000, leaving the presidency as multi-millionaires. Something smells?

Yep. I don't refer to that parasite as "Snopes Clinton" because of his high ethical standards and sterling moral leadership.
