We have ran a couple jobs that involved that stuff. Our biggest cutomers have gone from Red Bull racing and Penske racing to Faurecia and Tenneco over the last couple years. We do a couple jobs for Eberspaecher and Katcon in my building but i think we run parts for them at the stamping plant all the time. We do lots of prototype perforated tubes for mufflers on our tube laser.

Do you ever read the threads you coment in?
Everyone is talking about how much work they have but you still try to make sound like a conspiracy theory. Adjust your tin hat.

And of course the numbers don't reflect people who stop looking for work. How do you differentiate between a hooker who gets a sugar dady then stops looking and a person who just gives up. There are many reasons why people don't want to work.

No I never read the threads I post in. I just jump in when I see you comment and say something totally different only to get you to come up with some liberal minded comment.

There is work out there, only not what things used to be. The economy sucks, the unemployed is hovering around 8%. Which is not good but the media and this admin would like you to think this is the new normal. Do a quick search and you would find this so called recovery is the worst after any recession.
Business start ups at at and all time low and as for businesses investing thats not happening and if it is it's only because of necessity.
With this administration the risk for investment in business is too much of a risk to gamble on.

why is it that you ruin every thread you post in? Not one person said it is where it used to be. The jobs report is just one indicator of the current trend. That's it, nothing more.

Carry on nut job.

Cyprus might have toppled the first domino.

I wonder now if $10g in my bug out bag will be worth anything when the currency collapses?

I own a landscaping company I built from nothing within the past couple of years. Last summer I was comfortable (or dumb) enough to leave my full time job that had benefits and decent pay. I'm far from bringing home six figures a year but I can pay my bills and continue to grow my business. My usual customer base is the upper middle class and commercial accounts fwiw.

The great depression was a double dip separated by several years. Those who didn't loose everything during the first dip put in all chips, then lost it all in the second dip. In the end, almost nobody had a savings left.

Ok just found this which just might be not so good for the us USD. The printing of money may come to a grinding halt if more countries follow. Which means no more free lunch.
