While terms of the deal are not yet clear, the sources indicated there were new incentives on offer from the state of Indiana, where Pence is governor, that helped clear a path for the agreement.


Guarantee it's tax breaks for the corporation i.e. corporate welfare.

In this case, people keep their jobs instead of becoming unemployed and relying on the welfare system to make it.


See that folks? It's OK if a corporation is on the welfare system but it's not OK if people are. Your tax dollars hard at work to keep rich people rich.

And if they had moved to Mexico? What do you think would have happened to the workers then?

First you guarantee it's tax breaks without knowing the "incentives " and then proceed to create an argument against Corporate welfare vs. Public welfare based on your own assumption.

Do you need us here?

Swing for the fences President Trump. Ignore the liberal tears.

The Country NEEDS you to save it from the progressive hell hole it is in.

It reads a lot to me like he's giving them subsidies to make up the difference in revenue between the US and Mexico plants. Should the government really be giving one company subsidies, and not to their competitors? Especially when the reason is blackmail over sending away jobs?

Is that actually a deal? It sounds to me like the taxpayers are losing out.

What other incentives would it be? It's not the environmental regulations that make Mexico more appealing, it's the dollars exchange rate. If he didn't give them tax breaks he's outright giving them cash. It can only be one of those two things.

Assume much?

Looks like the taxpayers are going to have to foot the bill either way. IF corporate welfare was the bargaining chip used in the deal to keep Carrier here. If that is the case then really it doesn't matter if they stay or move to Mexico it's just a matter of who you want to pay welfare for, the business or the unemployed workers if the business moves.

The workers would've been covered by a short time by their union coupled with some coverage by unemployment. I'm not sure if Indiana expanded Medicare coverage from Obamacare but the employees likely could use that to cover their healthcare costs, if any. Meanwhile, their employers will cut the upper-management at the plant some golden parachutes because they 'did the best they could' and the UTX stock price would bump up a few cents.

But now, 1000 people keep their union jobs, Trump gets to look good to his supporters and the Indiana taxpayers (including the employees) will have to cover the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, in tax dollars that Indiana has just lost so the Carrier could be bribed into staying.

The end result of this? Carrier makes more money, the employees don't see a raise and Indiana's budget goes deeper toward the red.

What makes you think they were paying millions in tax dollars to begin with?

Wait until he has his own "baggage" as a politician.

He has plenty as a civilian.

UT pays hundreds of millions in taxes.

UT Taxes

Not to mention payroll taxes.

Its decision was based largely because of the $65 million that executives say they will save by moving to Monterey, Mexico - despite political broadsides from Trump, former Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders and many others.


I'm sure not all of that was just operating costs and employee pay.

Perhaps he will, I'm willing to wait for details. It seems you weren't willing to wait for details before praising him though.
