Electrolux: We're Still in America
Electrolux is disputing a comment by a presidential candidate which implied that the company has moved its operations outside the United States.
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), who is running for president as a Republican, appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press" with David Gregory on Sunday and made a comment about Electrolux's recent movement of some jobs to Mexico.
"I want jobs here in America," Bachmann said on the show, according to NBC News' official transcript. "I'm tired of seeing them go overseas. We are losing companies literally all across Iowa. This is a very serious issue. Webster City, Iowa, Electrolux Vacuum Cleaners, they've closed their doors. They're gone. They didn't just leave Webster City, they left the United States."
