Sen. John Howe of Red Wing introduces Dave Murphy, President of Red Wing Shoe Co., who testifies before the Senate Tax Committee on March 1, 2011.
Watch the video to gain a better appreciation of the intense challenges they face. I say “they” because I think of the Shoe as being the 1,2oo workers here in Red Wing who are, “The Shoe.”
When you hear Mr. Murphy discuss the decision to move some jobs to Missouri instead of Red Wing, you can’t help but put that into the context of how our local government spending impacts the Shoe and other businesses.
A great company and corporate citizen. Now go buy a pair here!
