SDDP Statement on MFG Plant Closure

SIOUX FALLS – The South Dakota Democratic Party released the following statement from Executive Director Sam Parkinson in response to today’s announcement from Molded Fiber Glass Companies (MFG) that they would close their plant in Aberdeen in response to “proposed revisions in tax policies impacting the wind energy industry in the United States:”

“Today’s news is the latest evidence that the tax policies of Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress – supported by Rep. Kristi Noem and Senators Mike Rounds and John Thune – will cost South Dakotans jobs. The 409 MFG employees who will lose their jobs are just the latest victims of a Republican tax agenda that is great for the wealthy and large corporations, but will harm everybody else. Unlike Republicans, Democrats are fighting for a pro-growth tax structure that promotes manufacturing jobs, including in the wind energy industry and other renewable energy industries. We believe our economy should work for everyone, not just the privileged few.”
