Carrier Announces Deal With Trump To Keep 1,000 Jobs In Indiana…

…”and we will win, and you will win, and we will keep on winning, and eventually you will say we can’t take all of this winning, …please Mr. Trump …and I will say, NO, we will win, and we will keep on winning”. ~ Donald Trump

The bigger story here is that: A.) A U.S. President-Elect actually cares about blue collar jobs, and B.) United Technologies, ie. Carrier’s parent company, recognizes their best interests are now to focus on “America First”.

(New York Times) From the earliest days of his campaign, Donald J. Trump made keeping manufacturing jobs in the United States his signature economic issue, and the decision by Carrier, the big air-conditioner company, to move 2,000 1,400 of them from Indiana to Mexico was a tailor-made talking point for him on the stump.

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.

      I’m so done with Libertarians. They’re just a bunch of selfish, heartless, corporatist rats that couldn’t give a damn about their fellow American struggling to feed their families and pay the bills. They’re more worried about their tax dollars being spent to help business than they are terrorism or the high rate of unemployment. Anyone who supports price gouging during a natural disaster is deplorable(and not in the good way).

        • A “libertarian” is not the kind of doctrinaire dogmatic authoritarians that seem to have taken over so much of that party.

          Real libertarians are generally laissez faire live and let live, who devote tremendous energy to engaging in extremely tire some philosophical discussions about how to reconcile notions of personal liberty with the needs of society.

        This is what one libertarian (not in the party, they suck for they’ve been infiltrated by progressives) says about businesses and taxes. Business don’t pay taxes. When you tax a business, you’re taxing, indirectly, the owners, the operators (employees), and the customers. Business climate in the US has been going down hill for years. Taxes and regulations (redundant) are key factors in determining when and where it is economical to run one. Trump will do us all a favor by lowering them as much as politically possible (yeah, a prayer answered would be for business taxes to be eliminated). [I’ll put it to you this way, if you knew that the government could take away everything you worked for on a whim, would you put your life’s work where it would be at such a risk?]

          You’re right but switch the last line of your comment from ‘government’ to ‘businesses’ and you see how outsources ruins families and communities’ livelihoods. Unfortunately, the people don’t have as much flexibility as a corporation to just get up and move to China to keep themselves employed.

          I think one issue free market folks fail to sometimes see is that business owners and workers aren’t the same entity and don’t have the exact same goals. Businesses want less regulations, less confiscatory taxation, and higher profits. The worker wants, lower confiscatory taxation, higher wages, and job stability. 2 out 3 of these are many times in conflict with the business.

            As a worker, I don’t want higher wages as much as I want to keep what I make and have what I make buy more. To earn more, I must make what I do more valuable. Job stability is something, like utopia, that doesn’t exist. As a worker I must adapt and keep myself valuable to the one I’m selling my value to, which is the employer. Free market folk do see that both are free and free means that neither one owns the other. Plus, I’ve been on both sides of the situation.

              But isn’t that irrelevant if the employer simply looks for the most profits and closes down a plant with highly effective workers only to replace them with less skilled, but far cheaper, foreign workers overseas? I just can’t buy the argument that manual skilled labor should no longer exist in America because of the “free market”. It’s government manipulation that keeps the minimum wage forced up and heavy regulations on employers. Get that out of the way and, to me, it will simply be immoral for a business to outsource. The labor participation rate is as low as the Carter Era. American wealth is diminished and the spirit of the people is somewhat broken. I see Donald Trump as the chief CEO and cheerleader to get America back proud, wealthy, and strong. He can be good for business and workers.

                  Exactly. And if they do, here comes that 35% tariff. Remember, the greatest boost to the economy is an employed populace. When companies outsource, that’s tax revenue the state has lost. The Carrier deal that saved 1100 jobs was only at a ‘cost’ of $7 million over 10 years. At an average salary of $63K/yr per employee that equals $693 million in gross income to those employees over 10 years. If just 20% of that goes to the Feds, that almost $139 million of tax money the government gets that they wouldn’t had those jobs went to Mexico.

                  As that which happened during the Reagan years, I think Trump’s time will see a massive movement of money back here. Yep, the money that fled due to taxes and regulations and excessive immigration, legal and otherwise (some of which simply replaced the aborted). That we had to (some of us old greybeard granddads and grey haired grandmas) relive the 60s/70s when we didn’t have to, because that experiment had already been done, more than once, is galling.

Example: 50 states of America have free trade with no treaty, no bilateral agreements, etc. Remember, MoniQue – Libertarians call for very, very small government, free markets, free trade, willing sellers, willing buyers, you know…

      People need to get wise to the phony “corporate tax.” Corporations don’t pay the tax, their customers pay it when they buy the product or service. Get rid of the corporate tax altogether, for Pete’s sake, along with all the other federal taxes, and go to the Fair Tax. We will all save a bundle in the long run. The only hitch is Congressional unwillingness to give up their favorite means of extortion.

  30. I’m certainly happy President-elect Trump has intervened to save 1000 jobs.

    But….

    We are still losing 1000 jobs. I know the President-elect has not yet entered office so this is not on him and I am grateful that he did save a 1000. But I fear this is a little like negotiating with terrorists. Companies announce a huge move to Mexico and then cut the numbers in half in exchange for some tax cuts.

    Obviously turning the huge supertanker that is globalization will take some time. And so in a year or two I would like to see tariffs on the Mexican border, measures taken to lower the value of the dollar, and jobs COMING BACK to the US. While this is certainly a good first step to slow down the rush of jobs out of the US — victory only comes when the jobs start flowing voluntarily back over the border due to macro-economic conditions created by the Trump Administration

    What was not disclosed in this “deal” is that Carrier is in partnership with the Koch Brothers. So now through Mike Pence, Trump will “owe” the billionaire Koch brothers politically. Quote :”The state of Indiana also plans to give economic incentives to Carrier as part of the deal to stay, according to local officials.” Pence is still governor of Indiana so the Kochs made the deal with him. Pence will profit personally from this maneuver. And he will also “owe” the Kochs political favors as VP.

    I’ll tell you right now, these manufacturing companies want to stay in the US. They always have. They don’t leave “just to make more profit”. They leave because the increasing taxes and regulations have made it nearly impossible to survive here. But they prefer being here because operating in the cheaper places like Mexico and China brings with it a whole different set of headaches.

    As an example, at a meeting today, the subject of Carrier came up. One of the managers said he used to work at an electronics manufacturer years ago. They decided to cut costs by moving part of their production to Mexico.

    He had to fly down to Mexico about twice a year to train workers to use the machines. They couldn’t keep the same crop of workers there. They would take a few paychecks and then drift off. The company eventually shut that operation down and moved it to China.

    Of course, then China steals their processes and designs.

    They want to operate here, but our government just needs to cut them a break. I’d imagine many are waiting anxiously to see what happens over the next couple of years, and many decisions might be put on hold.
