Donald Trump isn’t taking a day off and he is already making huge progress into his promises during the election.
Donald Trump made the focal point of his economic policy to keep manufacturing jobs in the United States and to penalize companies for moving off shore for cheaper labor.
Well, Donald Trump just saved nearly 2,000 jobs from going overseas.
Donald Trump has been holding talks with Carrier and their parent company United Technologies and the talks were very successful because Indiana will be keeping thousands of its jobs that were about to move overseas.
According to the New York Times:
On Thursday, Mr. Trump and Mike Pence, Indiana’s governor and the vice-president elect, plan to appear at Carrier’s Indianapolis plant to announce they’ve struck a deal with the company to keep roughly half of the jobs in the state, according to officials with the transition team as well as Carrier.
In exchange for keeping the factory running in Indianapolis, Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence are expected to reiterate their campaign pledges to be friendlier to business by easing regulations and overhauling the corporate tax code.
Roughly 10 percent of United Technologies’ $56 billion in revenues comes from the federal government, with the Pentagon its single largest customer. Its Pratt & Whitney division, for example, supplies the engines for the Air Force’s most advanced fighters and host of other planes.
This is a great American company that makes does great things for both the American economy, military, and average consumers. This is a huge victory for Donald Trump before he even takes office.
