    Motorola can’t afford to build its smartphones in the United States any longer



    Might I remind the greedy bean counters over at Moto...some people can afford America and don't complain about it icon_rolleyes.gif

    Let's be honest. The Motorola "factory" in the US wasn't much of a factory. It was all PR and marketing. All the workers really did was snap on different colors to the backs of the phones. The actual assembly of the phone and electronic components was all done overseas.

    You must have missed the "cant afford" part in the first sentence, meaning all overseas workers are paid pennies compared to US workers and its affecting Moto's payroll system, might as well pack it up and save more on cheap labor, disgusting, don't let the door hit your ass on the way out, I have an old Moto flip phone that I will take outside with my American made hammer, I have some pent up anger to release icon_rolleyes.gif

    Motorola has been going down hill for quite a while. First they sold off their entire semiconductor products sector. Than the company split itself up and Google bought out the one half of it. Now whats left of Motorola is sending all its remaining work to some poor, third world country overseas most likely in Southeast Asia. I used to work for Motorola when I lived in Austin, it was a great job while it lasted until I got laid off two years later.
