          Mine was proudly assembled in York, PA plant. A friend of mine that works there told me that they are busy enough to be working overtime again. That has to be hopeful for MoCo anyway, but the plant staying open came at a cost.........reduction in force later this year (layoffs/retirement/termination of jobs). Another concession from the union that I am sure was similar in the Milwaukee Plant negotiations also. Just another way that big business ends up hurting the individual and making their 'spin' on the scenario look as though they are 'saving jobs'.
          Just my observation.

              Yeah, great about the York plant, too!
              Last I heard (over a year ago, probably), it was on the chopping block for sure. Sad.
              Great to hear they pulled through!
