I understand people being shocked, simply shocked that the tax cut for companies and the 1% isn't making the economy better. Wal-Mart instead of raising pay, gave bonuses, as did others. Acquisition of competitors or complementary businesses seems to be proceeding rapidly. And companies like H-D doing this will continue.
I think it probably is true that Harley makes more on merchandise, their bikes are really expensive, even compared to the revamped Indian bikes with their also-traditional look. Compare the number of bikes you see to t-shirts, decals on trucks, etc.
I am sorry for those losing their jobs, and I am hopeful for a turn-around politically, if we get away from our devices and talk with each other.
