I just read a two week old article about Harley Davison threatening its employees that if they don’t comply with their cost cutting demands they will close the plant and move out of state.

They said they wanted cheaper labor so they are fighting the steelworkers union to lower wages.

They are willing to move out of state an get cheaper labor; sounds like quality is no longer a priority. Maybe they could move the plant to China and really save some money.

At our company when things slow down we just do less work, we don’t change what made us successful. We do cut out expenses but not anything that would hurt our quality. We don't get rid of our high quality employees to replace them with rookies.

In conclusion: I don’t think Harley should have ever gone public, they will never be the same.

I think that sentiment applies to a good many public companies.

The same as what?

It's clear that you don't follow the company, its products or its stock. There is absolutely nothing in your post that even closely resembles the reality of Harley-Davidson's situation.
