Carrier Plant Where Trump 'Saved' Jobs Plans Layoffs

Source: MSN/Newsweek

A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas.

Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved.

But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas.

In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas.

1. And with the economy suddenly slowing, more are sure to follow.

Thanks, Cheeto.

2. And if I recall correctly, Pence gave them funds to stay in place. At the time, we all wanted

to know the terms of the "contract" that was set with carrier. With these impending layoffs, we now know it was all about optics as the jobs are going, just after the Cheeto lini was in office. GAH

3. The Trump curse strikes again.

Whatever Trump touches turns to shit. But he still has his faithful Trumptards fooled into thinking he's the greatest. That's because he's such a tough "negotiator", and he's a man who says what he means. He completely ruins everything he takes "action" on.

5. Same story every single time a Republican takes office.

They get in by appealing (lying) to the middle-class about saving jobs.
But they don't give a fuck. And they do just the opposite.
When will the middle-class learn? We may be okay in 2020, but the middle-class voters will quickly be "swooned" by another Ronald Reagan lying-sack-of-crap who comes along, and he/she will get elected.

8. I wonder if the media will cover this as heavily as they did the initial fake story in Dec.

When they trumpeted it far and wide to convince us all of Dump's magical deal making powers.

9. But how many will admit they were wrong to believe his lies?

It's absolutely shameful to lie to workers about to lose their jobs as a way to manipulate voters
