C'mon people 'Lefties' and 'Righties' alike...tell me you're not impressed by this.

THIS man is not even in office yet...and he works over Thanksgiving with his V.P. to bring back jobs to Indiana.
I have a feeling we can expect great things from this soon-to-be President!


He’s not even president yet, but Donald Trump already is making deals to keep jobs in the U.S., according to CNBC.

According to the business-news network, the Trump team has reached an agreement with United Technologies to keep in Indiana a Carrier plant that had been scheduled to close and have the jobs shipped overseas.

Citing “sources,” CNBC said that deal was brokered with assistance and “new inducements” from the Indiana state government, whose governor is Vice President-elect Mike Pence. “Trump will visit IN on Thurs. to announce Carrier deal,” CNBC reported on its Twitter feed.

Good deal indeed !!

Looks like Mr. Trump might have influence where it's needed.

Glad to see some workers will be spared from the NAFTA aftershocks.

Corporate welfare at its finest.



“Congratulations Indiana taxpayers! You involuntarily bought an inefficient AC factory,”

He's already saved more American jobs than Obama did in nearly 8 years.

You are jumping to a conclusion.

Do you have the details of the deal yet? How do you know he didn't tell them what corporate regulations he was going to abolish and that convinced them?

It is a common practice to give companies some incentive to keep jobs in an area. There is a balance. In this case, people keep their jobs instead of becoming unemployed and relying on the welfare system to make it.

That is the way to make a deal for the American people. Hoping this is just a start

Your jumping to a conclusion.

Do you have the details of their pay? Aside from the CEOs do the employees make a living wage?

Inefficient company or inefficient taxing?

Can you can prove carrier is a net cost to the state?

Did you also hate the stimulus package at a cost of 278,000 per job saved or created, I hope you are a libertarian, otherwise I'd love to get into green subsidies and job creation with you. But a libertarian would not be complaining about paying less taxes so I highly doubt you are.

Australia just closed its last Holden Factory because they're moving everything to Mexico.

I wish Australia's PM Malcolm Turnbull had balls half the size of Trumps, maybe we'd get results too!

I don't belong to any paradigm of political wings. When I take those affiliation tests I do wind up in the libertarian camp.

Nonsense.

Carrier is owned by United Technologies Corporation (UTC).

UTC has *billions* of dollars at stake in government contracts. UTC is a major defense contractor.

I'd say Mr. President-Elect used that leverage beautifully and the "inducement" thing is just a cover story so UTC can save face.

Score a big one for Mr. Trump!

This is a good start but doesn't sell me on Trump but credit is given where credit is due. Hopefully the company stays in the US and doesn't double back on this deal.

Funny enough, Bernie Sanders was recently tweeting about the same company and told Trump to take action.

Bernie Sanders Wants Trump To Threaten United Technologies (UTX) Against Moving Jobs To Mexico

Bernie is also drafting a bill that will greatly affect the way American companies do business overseas, you know outsourcing. It all but makes them move back to America if it passes. Will Trump join Sanders or will he submit to Wall Street? Here's that article from Forbes who calls it Ludicrous.
