Manufacturing company in Minneapolis since 1987 leaving city after violent protests

A Minneapolis manufacturing company, whose plant burned amid civil unrest following George Floyd's death, is leaving the city after nearly four decades and taking dozens of jobs with it.

The president and owner of 7-Sigma Inc. Kris Wyrobek felt inclined to do so after he says he lost trust in public officials during the riots that plagued the city, according to Star Tribune.

"They don't care about my business," said Wyrobek told the Star Tribune. "They didn't protect our people. We were all on our own."

I expect more businesses to leave Minneapolis and Twin Cities area.

I looked up the website for 7 Sigma.  Among things they make are medical devices.  Who knows, but maybe some of the morons who ransacked the business will someday need medical attention requiring one of the devices 7 Sigma  used to make and find out it's not available.
