Trump Announces Two More Companies Join “America First” Job’s Campaign – 8,000 New Jobs…

During a statement to the press on Wednesday, President-elect Donald Trump announced two more companies who have committed to repatriation of jobs for U.S. workers.

From his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, Mr. Trump said phone carrier Sprint will bring 5,000 jobs back from overseas. “They have taken them from other countries, they are bringing them back to the United States”, Trump said.

Sprint confirmed the announcement on its website:

Today, Sprint (NYSE: S) announced a commitment to create or bring back to America 5,000 jobs. The company anticipates these jobs will support a variety of functions across the organization including its Customer Care and Sales teams.

Sprint will begin discussions immediately with its business partners, states and cities to determine the right locations in the U.S. to create these jobs. The company expects to fulfill this commitment by the end of its fiscal year 2017 and will provide additional details when they are available.

“We are excited to work with President-Elect Trump and his Administration to do our part to drive economic growth and create jobs in the U.S.,” said Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure. “We believe it is critical for business and government to partner together to create more job opportunities in the U.S. and ensure prosperity for all Americans.”  (link)

“Customer Care” is Sprint’s corporate code-speak for ‘that person you talk to when you call customer support’. [ie. India and Pakistan phone answering services hardest hit]

President-elect Trump also said another company, OneWeb, will hire an additional 3,000 U.S. workers which he called “very exciting.” OneWeb is a satellite network aimed at providing affordable internet access.

Discussing the deal Trump said it “was done through” SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son, a Japanese billionaire. The pair met in New York earlier this month, and announced together that SoftBank — which is Sprint’s largest shareholder and has invested in OneWeb — would invest $50 billion in the U.S. and planned to create 50,000 jobs.

We weren’t like this. Her younger brother went to a 2 year tech school and voted Trump and is excited for his future.

          As for those making the most noise:

          Any able bodied person who receives welfare should at least have to get off their behinds and go stand in line to get that check. It should be handed out piecemeal day by day. Maybe standing in a line long hours everyday would be less attractive than sitting on the sofa or staying in bed or blowing smoke, and thus might lead to more willingness to go to work.

          “Hidden welfare lines” are a problem because the rest of the US cannot see how many there are, and there is no shame because there is no public view of these people.

          Note that I said “able bodied.”

          Why don’t able bodied welfare recipients have to do some valuable work to get a check?
          Ditches need digging, fruit needs picking, floors need mopping, trash needs picking up off our streets and in our parks…there are many jobs they could do to earn their welfare checks with children in tow larger children helping when not in school. Schools don’t stay open 24 hours a day.

          I know this comment will get negative responses. But my grandma had a huge garden and taught us as little kids: if you won’t work you won’t sit at my table.

          It think it might be a good idea to require some kind of work.

          • Any able-bodied person should ONLY given welfare if ACTIVELY looking for work AND for a maximum of 3 months.

            After that, they should be given a ticket to a RETRAINING FACILITY located in agricultural belts, where they learn during the week and grow crops to feed themselves on weekends until they earn jobs – wherever they exist.

            [Those who are INCAPABLE of retraining for private employment can maintain these facilities and work on their supporting farms.]

            They should FUND their training with deductions from their credited past/future contributions to their social security accounts.

            SUDDENLY they have skin in the game and a sense of urgency to take whatever jobs are available or earn a job they can train for.

            SUDDENLY there’s a way to shoehorn them out of their parents’ basements and into productive society.

            As someone that is an able-bodied male that was on the EBT program several years ago I can tell you that it’s not always so cut and dry. I lived in a very rural area at the time and there were no jobs available that wanted me. I applied everywhere I could and nothing came of it. Even McDonald’s didn’t want me. So I kept working at a home based business that I still do today and eventually, I was able to get off the EBT program after one year.
            I was never proud of using the card and I don’t believe having to stand in a “virtual bread line” would help, especially the elderly and those lacking transportation outside of metro areas. Our country’s problem is what Trump is doing his best to fix; Our missing infrastructure job base and ability for private individuals to get back loans to start businesses is why so many are still losing homes and struggling to make the incomes they did over 10 years ago with 2 or more jobs.

            • I never had an EBT card because I had savings to live on, but I went through a similar experience in a rural area; no one would hire me, not even the local grocery store. I have a college degree and tons of work experience but in a specialized area. An EBT card would have been a big help for me, but I just could not go and see if I was eligible, too proud. But, I do understand the need.

              Finally, I did get a job from an out-of-state company and it is work from home and I love it!

            My mom told me about times when her father couldn’t make the bills back in the 1950s. He would go to the town and ask for assistance. The catch was he had to do work for the town to pay off the debt then he was on his way. That’s the way it should be.

        Kids would not be in parents basement if they had chosen to study for a degree that companies need. Many students get useless degrees and are only of value if they go for a PhD and then they might get a good paying job.
        The other is many students are immature and party much in school and believe just squeezing through is good enough. My husband a retired University professor can tell stories of bright kids goofing around lying to parents who pay . Many young adults never had responsibility.

    Good. Whatever kind of jobs they are, 8000 people will feel better about their life. Jobs and working are how people sustain self-respect. If these are entry jobs, or part-time or lower than good paying, they are still openings for people to “get in out of the rain”. We need a million of them, but these are coming home. That’s good.

    Self-esteem is vital for a healthy society.
    70,000 factories left America. That’s probably 35 million jobs.
    Should be able to recover one third of those.
    New startups, small businesses, expansions, growth, should add 10-15 million more.

    It begins already. Small step, but we are moving to the goal. America First.

              This is an article that explains one facet of “Made in the U.S.A.” as it affects the fashion industry.

              While the yarn is from Turkey, it’s knit here, so Chanin is still permitted by the Federal Trade Commission to label any garment made of the fiber with “Made in the U.S.A.” That’s because of the Code of Federal Regulations’ Title 16, Part 303.33, a part of the the Textile Fiber Rules. A brand must look “one step back” to determine the country of origin. Because the yarn is knit and dyed in the U.S., not just cut and sewn, it is considered a U.S. garment.

              However, if the yarn was knit abroad, but cut and sewn here, the FTC would say that the garment should not carry the “Made in the U.S.A.” tag…

              Cars.com does a list, I think annually, that gives the make and models of the top cars that are “made in the U.S.A.,” but what that means is that at least 75 percent of the parts were made by Americans. American automobiles for the most part do not qualify as “made in America.” This year the top five models are all Toyota or Honda, and “American” auto manufacturers only provide #s 6-8.

              So it seems that it is all pretty political as just about everything is these days.

But you can’t get management to admit it since they made the decision to bring them here and the H1Bs sit very quietly and pretend to work so upper management thinks they look really good compared to Americans who tend to disagree with management decisions that are idiotic. I NEVER saw an H1B worker who could completely do the job they were hired for. Management papered over this by forcing more work onto the remaining Americans.

            Those doctors are hard to find! Also I don’t like going to a doctor, and being seen by a nurse or PA as my only choice but still having to pay for a physician visit! You are NOT getting what you pay for, so it is a cheat plain and simple!

            Medical practice has gone downhill bigtime! Too much of corporate monopolies, with too much of megapharm/medical corporation incestuous business practices.

            Patients are merely unimportant numbers rather than sick humans. When corpmed and bigpharm share a monopoly on a basic service the patient has no choice and no voice.

            Patients are on an assembly line nowadays, and God help you if you have a serious illness!

            In fact, IMO, God’s help via prayer would be a much better help than the poisons pharma produces and corpmed prescribes and bigmedia advertises for the sake of megabucks.

            Once upon a time, a person could go to his doctor with an ingrown toenail, a bad cold, and an upset stomach and get help for all three in a single visit. Now he will pay for a doctor while seeing a nurse, and be scheduled with a surgeon, a pulmonologist, and a gastroenterologist. Each specialist will call for all sorts of “diagnostic tests” and each will prescribe several (often crossreactive) medicines all of which have side effects much worse than the original problem.

            I truly believe that corpmed/bigpharm require a that certain percentage of people “must be diagnosed with CA” even if they don’t have it, in order to keep the bigmoney cancer scams going.

            I told my “provider” that I don’t do preventive medicine, b/c all they look for is CA and CA is incurable, and the so-called treatments are poisoning, slashing, and burning.

            “Why do you need me, then?” the “provider” asked.
            I answered with a smile, “You have the ability to prescribe antibiotics should I require them, the only known medicine that can effect a cure instead merely symptom relief. And you have the ability to give me pain meds should I get CA, which I might then require toward the end of my life. Other than that, I will let you know if and when I need you for anything else.” So far I haven’t.

When I first got here and even sometimes I say Spanish words by mistake (I learned Spanish before I learned Italian) and that set off a few bus drivers who said THIS IS NOT SPAIN! 😀 But they didn’t seem to mind my broken Italian as long as they saw that I was sincerely trying. But after you been here a long time they will expect you to speak better. But the tourists they do not expect that, just don’t speak Spanish!

    I’m glad to hear that President Trump (has a nice ring, doesn’t it?) has been able to leverage a deal with Sprint to return telecom jobs to the US. I’m a retired telecom installer, from a family of telecom workers, so I have a particular interest in this win. I hope the win continues to other telecom companies that are major US communication carriers, because there have been too many strange coincidences with outages, foreign purchases and subcontracted labor.

    Sprint network has had more than it’s share of technical troubles within the last year or so with major network outages. Last year a major outage hit the West Coast, and was rumored to be sabotage; exactly what happened was never fully disclosed, but insiders speculate it was purposely done by disgruntled employees or former employees. Earlier this month, there was a major fire at the Sprint central office in Omaha, severely injuring one person and causing 911 outages as far as the Twin Cities area. It was never disclosed if the injured man was a Sprint worker or what his position was that put him in a phone office.

    50 years ago, when telecom workers finished a phone office in one town, they packed up their trailer houses and moved to a new town, taking their wives and children with them. They were American workers, proud to be involved in making the United States the best connected country on earth. Their families were proud, too, knowing their loved one worked for a company that had the resources, brain trust and innovation that helped make America great.

    The company I worked for had a long, proud history of providing the best communication service in the country, up until the 1980 divesture. After the divesture, ‘telephone installers’ suffered through leadership that ran the company into the ground, then sold off to a French company who in turn sold it to a Finnish company, headed up by a guy from India. One of the strategies the company used to increase corporate profits and pay exec’s huge salaries, bonuses and parachutes was to outsource not only the ‘customer care’ to places like India and the Philippines, they outsourced installation and technical services, too. The jobs that actually make the network run are being performed by workers hired off the street with little to no training of how to make and keep the system up and working.

    I’m hearing reports from the field that the replacement workers are camping out at cellular huts, living like squatters; they eat, sleep and leave their waste on the ground around these buildings. I haven’t asked, but I’m going to guess that the new workers living like squatters are not Americans. I worry about the quality of their work, their work ethic and attention to the details that keep our communications running. I also worry that should they have a mind too, they could take down large sections of our country’s communications.

    Which brings me back to the issue with Sprint’s service issues. Were they caused by poorly trained ‘replacement’ tecnicians or foreign labor or is it part of a dry run to see how much of a network they could disable? Sprint isn’t the only telecom provider abandoning their veteran labor force; these new workers service all the large carrier’s cellular networks.

    The telecom industry is just one of many industries that have been hit hard by Globalist interests, which is too bad…not just for me, a forced-retired telecom worker with a sob story, but for the Nation as a whole. Communications are critical infrastructure, almost as much as water, power and transportation. Critical infrastructure shouldn’t be owned or serviced by foreign interests.

    I’m looking forward to applying for a technician job as Sprint.

I wish the remnants of the ‘legacy’ provider would quit using cheap, untrained and unconcerned installation and maintenance, and I wish Bell Labs hadn’t been part of the sale to a foreign company. All the new owner really wanted out of the purchase was Bell Labs, not the labor force.

    We just put in hardwood floors, and I was able to catch a great sale and buy the floors from a manufacturer in Michigan who uses domestic trees! The floors were not much more per square foot than the ones produced overseas, and with less waste because of better quality, I think the pricing was almost the same for solid as opposed to engineered hardwood (which we had to use for the basement because solid hardwood can’t go below grade.)

    What we need to look is the exponential of these actual jobs produced (as opposed to Obama’s “saved jobs) by Trump or more correctly the companies he is negotiating to stay here in the USA. Whether we look at MoniQue’s numbers of 150,000+ or whatever the number may be, each of these jobs actually represents those numbers multiplied by a factor of 4 to 6. Because with each job comes additional support or retail / service jobs off of each of these jobs created.

    One factory created in a town means not only the specific job but the maintenance of said job location, possible security of location, the employment of say 5,000 workers leads to their spouses and working age children accepting jobs in the new location which leads to greater economic output by needing additional housing (re: construction jobs), retail outlets (re: Walmart, auto dealerships, fast food restaurants, clothing stores, theaters, etc), schools need to built for the influx of 5,000 workers and their families, all of this generated by ONE SINGLE company.

    This is why Trump called creating or keeping jobs in America easy for him because he, as a businessman, sees the larger – strategic picture, something Obama ,who has never created anything in his life, could never grasp.

    So that 150,000 figure turns into a potential figure in the millions from what is generated out of these initial hires.

    WINNING!

If Trump keeps up this winning, he may win all the states in 2020, except for maybe CA and Washington DC.

    Love the picture w son and Dad!

    As someone who was displaced from an accounting job over 6 years ago, I am looking forward to seeing employers getting payback for dropping health coverage, wages and hours. I didn’t see any of the big ones go out of business or lose profits because of it. There will be so many jobs that they will be offering great wages and benefits again because there won’t be enough people to fill their job openings.

    As for Sprint, Hallelujah! I am sick and tired of calling a customer care center and having to speak to someone who I can’t understand because they are from India or another foreign country. .

    More winning please…..
