Here I am again. Still reading Plastics News, and not at all surprised at what I see.
It will be five years on Oct. 12 that I was forced to close my doors after 20 years in an injection mold building business. I was involved with molding for more then 10 years before that. After more than 30 years in the plastics industry, for the last five years I have taken jobs from cab driving to maintenance in a nursing home just to survive. Now the people publishing the industry's news are finally realizing what our trading with a country that does not play by the rules is doing to them.
All I will say is: Brace yourself. You are going to end up just like me if the imbalance in our trade with other nations is not brought under control.
