Carrier Says It Has Deal With Trump To Keep Jobs In Indiana

WASHINGTON (AP) — Air conditioning company Carrier Corp. says it has reached a deal with President-elect Donald Trump to keep nearly 1,000 jobs in Indiana. Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence plan to travel to the state Thursday to unveil the agreement alongside company officials.

Trump confirmed the meeting on Twitter late Tuesday, promising a “Great deal for workers!”

Trump spent much of his campaign pledging to keep companies like Carrier from moving jobs overseas. His focus on manufacturing jobs contributed to his unexpected appeal with working-class voters in states like Michigan, which has long voted for Democrats in presidential elections.

The details of the agreement were unclear. Carrier tweeted that the company was “pleased to have reached a deal” with Trump and Pence to keep the jobs in Indianapolis.

What will the 'deal' cost the taxpayers in the long run?

Or did he simply say 'None of your affiliated companies will ever get government work again if you proceed with this move!'? Illegal as all get-out - but a tactic possibly used....

So far, still much better than the HildaBeast - her only goal was to push the current turd's legacy further along!
Lock this 8!tch up...

He talked about a 35 percent tax on imports 7:49. He also talked of lifting regulations. This could possibly create competition for Carrier within the US if other AC companies were to open. Regulation (EPA and other government) are preventing competition for companies like Carrier because it's now too expensive to create manufacturing jobs in the US.

And the rebuilding begins. The left will never be able to accept the successes of the conservative movement as they do not understand (and don't care to) capitalism and what makes a corporation (like the United States) tick. Hang on folks, going to be a wonderful ride.

Cost the taxpayers?
Hmm 1000 laid of workers with only 6 months unemployment, losing healthcare and eventually going into foreclosure? I dunno what does that cost?
Its THEIR money - taxpayer money, money they paid in.
So if it keeps them employed and a roof over their heads, their families fed and healthcare, let them get THEIR taxpayer money back.

Because it is not like The government doesnt blow it on parties, conferences and such. How much did Hillary's state department lose and you are worried about how much this will cost to keep your fellow citizen employed?

He's not even President until he is sworn in, in January. But already he is working harder than any other politician did to keep and create jobs in the U.S. I say good work Trump you just saved 1000 American jobs from going overseas. That's a win win just ask the workers in Indiana who's jobs he saved. The first president I remember in recent history trying to keep his campaign promises.

And just like that he has already been more successful even before taking office than Obama has been is almost 8 years.

8:14 Good thought. And, don't forget when they are working here they are contributing to the tax base.

Is it just me, or is The Donald emulating Dictators?
In every way.

PS. I'm not a Hillary fan. She was a verifiable criminal.

It's just you 1:02. Just because he offers his opinion on certain things and a lot of people don't like that simply means he is not politically correct and nothing else. Many in this country need a good slap down and put back in their places and it starts with telling them like it is and not what they want to hear.

Jimmy Carter didn't talk to Carrier.
George H.W. Bush didn't talk to Carrier.
Bill Clinton didn't talk to Carrier.
George W Bush didn't talk to Carrier.
President Obama didn't talk to Carrier.

And why not? Their philosophy is let it ride.

Of course, we can't create jobs in this country, i.e. jobs with executives making millions per year in salary.
