I saw the headline "Ladder-maker Werner Co. to close Louisville plant, ship jobs to Mexico" on a local media website and thought .. Borowitz ? The Onion ? Nope.

Industry websites corroborated the story. Ladders R Us has moved to Juarez.

"Werner Company, the world's leading manufacturer and distributor of ladders, climbing equipment and ladder accessories, announced August 31, 2018 that it is entering the Mexican market by launching a full line of products designed specifically for Mexico. Werner will serve the Mexican market through its new subsidiary company, Werner Ladder Sales & Distribution S. de R.L. de C.V., located in Juarez, Mexico."
