Trump taking positive action even BEFORE taking office? Isn’t that a nice change to Obama’s blaming of Bush well into his second term?
Air conditioning company Carrier Corp. said it had reached a deal with President-elect Donald Trump to keep nearly 1,000 jobs in Indiana.
Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence are planning to travel to the state on Thursday to unveil the agreement alongside company officials.
The President-elect spent much of his campaign pledging to keep companies like Carrier from moving jobs overseas to countries like Mexico.
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 are unclear.
Carrier tweeted on Tuesday that the company was ‘pleased to have reached a deal’ with Trump and Pence to keep the jobs in Indianapolis.
A transition official confirmed that the president-elect and Pence, who is ending his tenure as Indiana governor, would appear with Carrier officials Thursday…
…Trump said last week that he was ‘making progress’ on trying to get Carrier to stay in Indiana.
He tweeted on Thanksgiving: ‘I am working hard, even on Thanksgiving, trying to get Carrier A.C. Company to stay in the U.S. (Indiana). MAKING PROGRESS – Will know soon!’
In February, Carrier said it would shutter its Indianapolis plant employing 1,400 workers and move its manufacturing to Mexico. The plant’s workers would have been laid off over three years starting in 2017.
United Technologies Electronic Controls also announced then that it planned to move its Huntington manufacturing operations to a new plant in Mexico, costing the northeastern Indiana city 700 jobs by 2018. Those workers make microprocessor-based controls for the HVAC and refrigeration industries.
