Carrier Layoffs: Hundreds Out Of A Job, A Year After Trump Deal
« on: January 12, 2018, 03:04:20 PM »
Carrier Corp. announced more layoffs this week, just over a year after the company made a deal with President Donald Trump to save jobs and prevent a plant from closing.

Carrier said 215 employees clocked in for their final shift at its air conditioning and heating plant in Indianapolis on Thursday. Those jobs, along with 338 manufacturing workers laid off in July, will be outsourced to the company's plant in Monterrey, Mexico, where workers make about $3 an hour, Indiana union officials told Reuters .

All they did was delay what they were going to do all along.
I guess it was good optics for them.

I remember well when the company whose fume hoods we installed moved their manufacturing to Mexico, the quality fell so low so fast that no one would buy them without deep discounts. I would predict the same will occur with Carrier.

Yeah, that Donald Trump, he's a master negotiator, saved all those Carrier jobs ...

... and if you let him, he'll save your soul!

Only the BEST deals.....
Fart for freedom, fart for liberty and fart proudly.  - Benjamin Franklin

...Obsta principiis—Nip the shoots of arbitrary power in the bud, is the only maxim which can ever preserve the liberties of any people. When the people give way, their deceivers, betrayers and destroyers press upon them so fast that there is no resisting afterwards. The nature of the encroachment upon [the] American constitution is such, as to grow every day more and more encroaching. Like a cancer, it eats faster and faster every hour." - John Adams, February 6, 1775

Seems to be a pattern.

Companies lick the golden rump then dump employees.

Nothing should make a man happier than knowing his government couldn't care less about him.
I'd rather lose defending the constitution than win at its expense.
Hitlers are born and die every day without notice. Its the morons who put them in power that are dangerous.
