Is Micron Technology done expanding in Idaho? Depending how you read a recent comment made by Micron’s chairman, president and CEO Steve Appleton in the current edition of Business Week magazine, the answer may be yes.“I don’t have to hire one more person in the U.S. I don’t have to invest one more dollar here — and we’ll be just fine,” Appleton said in the April 23 edition of the business magazine.
Appleton was featured in a story about how more U.S. companies are expanding overseas and no longer spending money on domestic operations.
CEO’s like this give a bad name to free-market principles by blatantly throwing the consumer base and workforce that got them to where they are under the bus. He’s no better than a liberal that goes to France to badmouth America
