As if New York Weren't Doing Enough to Drive Businesses Away

Six years ago, Sen. Charles E. Schumer urged company site selectors to take a fresh look at upstate New York.   He said Buffalo and Rochester were among the best places in the country to build a factory.

What would those private sector decision-makers think now of the campaign that Schumer and the rest of the state’s Democratic notables are making to muscle a national company into making a deal with its labor union?
Schumer shouldn’t be getting involved with the Motts strike in Williamson.   Comptroller DeNapoli shouldn't be trying to extort a settlement that ultimately will drive Mott's jobs out of New York, to one of the Free States.   They aren’t going to help the situation, and could only raise red flags for other companies thinking about doing business in upstate New York.

Thanks to correspondent Nathan for tipping us off to this.
