    health care costs were not a big issue. They were more concerned about the possibility of pollution standards and safety regulations cutting into profits, and they were eager for motor fuel to remain cheap. Republicans seemed like their best bet. Especially when the Democrats were strong supporters of organized labor.

      they just supposed that they could find some way to dump those.

      I've seen a lot of corporate decisions motivated by a kind of "everyone knows that" class prejudice. Everyone on the golf course knows that remote management, transport, and IP leak issues don't affect the profitability of outsourcing for lower labor rates -- even when nobody has even tried to quantify.
