New layoffs at Carrier factory year after Trump deal

Source: AP



Posted 4:55 PM, January 10, 2018, by Associated Press



INDIANAPOLIS ó A new round of layoffs is taking effect at the Carrier Corp. factory in Indianapolis a little more than a year after President Donald Trump touted a deal that save some of the plantís jobs.

The company says about 215 people are being let go starting Thursday, leaving about 1,100 workers at the plant. Thatís down from some 1,600 factory and office jobs when Carrier announced plans in early 2016 to move production to Mexico.
........................................

Trump frequently criticized Carrierís plant closing plans during the 2016 campaign. He traveled to the Indianapolis factory weeks after his election win to announce a tax-incentive agreement partially reversing the closure and keeping some 800 furnace production jobs.

5. First,Carrier recieved seventy seven million

last year from the State of Indiana. Secondly,from what has been printed in the press,Real Estate in that area is toast. Want a cheap House,well there are plenty available in that area.

Oh BTW,Carrier is about to fully Automate the remaining Plant,how many hundred more are going to be shown the door.

And the real kicker is,Trump wants his Labor Secretary to stop Laid Off Workers from using any Medicaid .

7. The Trump cult will never hear of this.

They don't cover any of Trump's failures on FAUX Noise, Limbaugh, or Breitbart. Everything is sunshine and lollipops there (at least concerning Trump's "many accomplishments" ).
