After City Refuses to Protect Them Manufacturers Are Leaving Minneapolis

Kris Wyrobek has spent 33 years in Minneapolis with his manufacturing business. Like so many others, he is wondering what happened to that promise. Now that the rioters have taken over the city and frightened city officials into disbanding the police force, citizens like Wyrobek are forced into some challenging decisions. The rioting is overshadowing the peaceful protesters and causing all sorts of havoc.

Now, Wyrobek is in the process of packing up the manufacturing plant that he is responsible. If all goes according to plan, the 7-Sigma plant is going to be built outside of Minneapolis. While the loss of the plant is obviously a major blow, the 50 jobs that he is going to be taking with him are an even bigger one.

Did the rioters think of these types of consequences when they were willing to burn all sorts of buildings to the ground? “They don’t care about my business,” Kris says. It’s hard to disagree with this assessment. The plant was even shut down early during the riots, so that Kris could keep his workers protected from harm.

A $30 million complex that was designed to provide affordable housing for Minneapolis residents was burned to the ground close by. This was obviously disconcerting for those who own manufacturing plants in the area. If this is how people are willing to treat affordable housing complexes, how do you think they are going to treat buildings that offer no such amenities?

A Minneapolis manufacturing company has decided to leave the city, with the company’s owner saying he can’t trust public officials who allowed his plant to burn during the recent riots. The move will cost the city about 50 jobs.

“They don’t care about my business,” said Kris Wyrobek, president and owner of 7-Sigma Inc., which has operated since 1987 at 2843 26th Av. in south Minneapolis. “They didn’t protect our people. We were all on our own.”

Wyrobek said the plant, which usually operates until 11 p.m., shut down about four hours early on the first night of the riots because he wanted to keep his workers out of harm’s way. He said a production supervisor and a maintenance worker who live in the neighborhood became alarmed when fire broke out at the $30 million Midtown Corner affordable housing apartment complex that was under construction next door.

“The fire engine was just sitting there,” Wyrobek said, “but they wouldn’t do anything.”

That’s why you are going to see a lot of manufacturing plants following in Kris’ path. Since they know that their cities are not willing to provide them any sort of protection, they have less than zero motivation to stick around. We’ll see how well these liberal cities do when they are shedding jobs and tax revenue faster than they are able to replace them.

Jacob Frey is the mayor of the city and he disagrees with the assessment. While the manufacturing plant owner claims that there was a fire engine nearby that would not intervene during the fires, Frey says that this is a lie. The truth is going to reveal itself soon enough and we wish that these city leaders would stop telling fibs like this.

Even the governor of Minnesota believes that this city failed to do everything that they could to stop the riots. If Governor Walz is not willing to go along with the nonsense, why should anyone else? It sure did take him long enough to contact the National Guard and put a stop to the violent protests. There’s plenty of blame to go around here, that is for sure.

There are some who may throw up their hands and shrug at the idea of losing 50 jobs. The liberals are sure to scoff. To them, there is no problem that is created by these actions that is even worth discussing. However, those who are following the situation more closely know that this man is not likely to be the only manufacturing plant owner who decides to take his business elsewhere.

Decisions like this one create a domino effect. Business owners in the area are not going to want to endure a repeat episode of what has already taken place. Their city has made it clear where they stand. They would rather stand in solidarity with the protesters than help business owners feel comfortable. It’s a sad juxtaposition but these liberal cities are letting the world know exactly how they feel.

When there is no room for further interpretation, it is time to make moves. No one should be sitting around and waiting for their city to make them feel as if their safety matters. Cities should be stressing a complete and total return to normalcy. Instead, they are embracing ideas that are a bit askew. Let’s hope that other cities are more willing to focus on their own failures, as opposed to turning the police department into a scapegoat.

  1. Finally someone tells the truth . Officials would rather allow riots over protecting people and their property.

  2. I see further decline in any city with the liberal democRATS in charge & it won’t be just manufacturers leaving !!!

  3. Can’t blame companies for leaving areas where protesters looted and burned businesses, and not
    Returning to those areas. The protesters brought it on themselves and the politicians not doing
    Anything to stop it.

  4. If the mayor would GUARANTEE the he will be fully tarred and feathered every day for the next ten years they ‘might’ reconsider.

  5. Portland oregon. Watch what will happen to Precision Castparts if these clowns don’t pertect this company. Their other major division is in Ohio with lots of land. What do you think Ohio would offer for PCC to move their manufacturing to there? Oregon’s Gov. wants cap and trade and the owner of PCC doesn’t like this state, watch this one!!!!!

  6. And when the BLM, ANTIFA, democratic liberals decide to follow the jobs, I hope the business owners ask the simple question of asking where they came from. If from an enabler city tell them they cannot be hired because of their previous terrorist activity.

  7. Attention! If you are in a position to either influence or actually move a manufacturing plant out of a blue area then please look at the numerous places in the South that clearly offer better opportunities than where you’re currently residing. However, if you are in a blue state or area and you are considering moving to one of our areas where politics is not dominated by left leaning politicians and the communities have not embraced the “entitlement philosophy” then you are extremely welcome by us to come here. The only thing that we ask is that before you come to please LEAVE YOUR LIBERAL POLITICS behind in those blue areas that you’re abandoning. We don’t want the politics and all of the associated ills that you possibly voted into office or enabled in previous years to affect our communities here.

  8. Smart move, they can go screw themselves for allowing their cities to be destroyed. These companies should move to safer locations. The Liberal demons are crazy, racist against almost everything. BLM is a joke now due to their rioting & looting!!

  9. Leaving these MISERABLE Left Liberal Run area is actually a NO BRAINER . . . There is NO REPRESENTATION or protection in these HORRIBLE towns except “political correctness”. One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.


  11. Any business which want to prosper has to leave Democrat destroyed states,cities etc.The voters who elect Democrats do not care about you and your business.Get the hell out while you are alive.NO SANE tourists should NOT go there either if you want to live and not be killed

  12. Oh yes America you are getting a micro picture of what Socialism really looks like in this country thanks to the a$$holes of antifa Lets take a city and make kindergarten demands. lets take a city but forget things like food and water, to really take over for a period of time. Lets show the world that we are also subseptiable to groups like this, and show them that local politicians have zero balls to stand up to them. surround them with military move forward and crush them once and for all. All you panzies out there this needs to be quashed before it starts in another city, maybe YOURS!

  13. Come South where you will find GOOD WORKERS and we don’t put up with ANARCHY & INSURRECTION! Most of the Southern States are ran by Sane, Republican Governors not LIBERAL DEMOCRATS like you would find in NORTH CAROLINA!

    1. If I were a younger person starting out in life, I certainly would move to the South. Cost of living is less than the state of CA where I live. AND, I wouldn’t be subjected to the disenfranchisement of living here. Voting laws discriminate against white citizens and favor illegals. In particular, BLM rioters consider themselves above the law and the No. CA students are so brain washed at Stanford and at Berkley they believe that disdain for the American Flag and the country where they were born is actually being patriotic.

      G-d help this generation when they realize what a horrendous error they have made.

  14. After I took early retirement in Los Angeles…from a mfg. co. I owned for 20 years, I decided to encourage my family members to look for another state to either start a business of move the one they have. Some have actually done this much to my pleasure in seeing them become so VERY successful! — I have also encouraged my college age grandchildren to take jobs in other states…and sometimes, depending on their chosen field… maybe consider moving to another country. This is certainly not the country I grew up in and in some instances that might be good. But, if you live and work in California, you will know what nutty democrats espouse here as PC and BS day in and day out. I feel like the inmates are running the asylum.

    1. You’re feelings are correct, there is absolutely no logical thinking in that bunch of lunatics! Nancy Pelosi is a brain fart balloon with a leak!

  15. These far left idiotic leaders are anti-America, traitors, and they are anti common sense! Leave them in the ash! Come to a right to work state, and thrive!

  16. When you can’t have a common goal, when logical arguing is impossible, there can be no growth, we must rid our Country of these brain-dead, treasonous, Democrats! Public Enemy #1 is not a title you would have imagined a political party would hold, but that is what happens when you put a foreign born individual in the White House, and have a non elected, dual-citizen, leader of that party, and leaders who take money from billionaires with bad intentions for our Country!

  17. When the Leaders of a City, do NOT have your back, you realize that it is time to LEAVE that City !

  18. 12.9% of total population of Country causing all the riots and destruction, yet they are part of every large manufacturing business, employed in all major city govt, police, sports,all major utility companies, the military, congress and even had a president and no, this is not enough! The 12.9% wants to be greater then 50% of any and everything and rejects law and order
    And to make it even worse, our country is rolling over and bowing down in the interest of the worst concept to ever evolve, namely, political correctness.

    God only help us.

  19. We should not. Put up with all this b.s. bring the army in.stop burning mom and pop and really any place.if not they should close you all in one place and let you guys kill each other.

  20. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into
    starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
