Sanders key point: If corporations want cushy tax cuts, all you have to do is threaten Trump and say "we're moving to Mexico."
"He has signaled to every corporation in America that they can threaten to offshore jobs in exchange for business-friendly tax benefits and incentives," Sanders wrote.
Carrier said it received "incentives" from Indiana, where Vice President-elect Mike Pence is still governor, but declined to specify exactly what sweetened the deal.
"After running a campaign pledging to be tough on corporate America, Trump has hypocritically decided to do the exact opposite," Sanders wrote.
On the campaign trail, Trump frequently threatened to slap Carrier with a stiff 35% tariff if it moved jobs to Mexico. But during negotiations, Carrier depicted a friendlier Trump.

They still are moving quite a few jobs out of America....just not as many.
And from what I read, they're going to be keeping low wage jobs at that. So this is what it comes to...more jobs, but more lower paying jobs.
America needs better paying jobs, not necessarily more jobs.

Trump is not giving them anything.
They just get to keep more of what they earn until the economy is repaired and fair trade is re-established.
Meanwhile we do not lose a thousand long term jobs that would otherwise never comeback.
Instead we will have thousands of taxable income jobs for decades worth way more than this temporary tax break.
