Losing 700 jobs in Kraft Heinz's Northfield headquarters is a devastating blow to that community, and to the workers and their families. The Kraft-Heinz merger, approved earlier this year, is a direct cause of these layoffs. This follows a pattern by the merged company's private equity owner, 3G Capital Partners, which also laid of thousands of American workers when it took over Anheuser-Busch in 2008. Investors and corporate executives win in these mergers, but American families and communities lose. I will continue to work to hold companies accountable for cutting American jobs and reward companies that expand their U.S. workforce.
