The NYTimes tells us that besides being the consummate inside trader, Sen. Perdue in his old day job was particularly adept at sending YOUR jobs offshore:
Before Embracing America-First Agenda, David Perdue Was an Outsourcing Expert
“The man who has lately voiced support for some of President Trump’s signature tariffs built his career as an unapologetic, free-trading practitioner of the outsourcing arts. As a top executive at companies including Reebok, Sara Lee and Dollar General, he was often deeply involved in the shift of manufacturing, and jobs, to low-wage factories in China and other Asian countries.
“A review of that business record shows a man who achieved significant successes, making millions, managing complex periods of corporate growth and change and creating domestic jobs, particularly at Dollar General. But there were also disappointments, like the failed trucking business he ran with Sonny Perdue and his fruitless effort to rescue a company called Pillowtex that brought heartbreak to a North Carolina mill town.”
Nothing surprises me about this grifter, but at least he’s always been consistent in ensuring his own enrichment at the expense of others.
