TRUMP SAVES 1,000 JOBS

Not even sworn in as president and he is busy working for all the people,Donald Trump and his team just made a deal to keep Carrier company in USA. Let's give credit when it's due.Perhaps, he may surprise the silent majority in doing good which he never promised. Let's see, he may even pick Romney as secretary of state. I can only wish he treats you Americans well and I mean the Guyanese Illegals.

And nice to see the Washington Post finally has something decent to say about someone other than Hillary. Little by little common sense will start to sink in.

"President-elect Donald Trump scored a victory Tuesday night when Carrier, an Indiana-based manufacturing company that had announced plans to move 1,400 jobs to Mexico, said it would keep 1,000 jobs in the state.

Trump and his vice president-elect, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, will travel to the state this week to celebrate the decision, a Trump transition official said. "We are pleased to have reached a deal with President-elect Trump & VP-elect Pence to keep close to 1,000 jobs in Indy," the company said in a Twitter post."

Hopefully we will get to know what were promised these rich people. It is about the bottom line so they will not stay and be at a disadvantage to competitors. I doubt leverage was made about denying defense contracts since those products are baked into projects and you simply do not terminate a supplier.

While I am with Trump to uphold the law of the land, I have mixed feelings about my Guyanese brothers and sisters living in the US illegally.  One immigration lawyer told me that in Queens, NY alone there are 300,000 illegal immigrants.  We are not quite sure what number of that is Guyanese, but it is upwards of 20,000.  I fear for their return to a land that has nothing to offer them.  But then again we need people to develop the homeland and those votes will make a difference in 2020.

Carrier will be promised more tax incentives. They should take away the defence contracts from them if they ship jobs out of the US for cheaper labor. Why cave in to these vultures.

Exactly.  This happens all the time in NY/NJ.

In fact there will be a net loss of 1,000 jobs.  Will they give incentives to every company which outsources?

Maybe as the Trump Org will be next in line.

I wonder how much tax money Trump gave away to save those jobs?

"So the president-elect is now in the middle of negotiations with the corporate giant in an effort to keep the jobs on U.S. soil. He’s not the only lawmaker interested in halting Carrier’s plans: Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has also promised to take action. But the two men are considering very different strategies when it comes to halting the offshoring of American jobs, and Trump appears to be backing away from striking promises he made during the campaign.

Both Carrier and the Trump administration have confirmed that the two sides are in talks, and according to sources at the New York Times and Wall Street Journal, the negotiations are a two-way street, with both the company and administration officials discussing concessions. In order for Carrier to keep jobs in the U.S., the Trump administration has discussed relaxing business regulations and backing away from campaign pledges to impose tariffs on companies that move jobs abroad, according to the Times."

SOmetimes you have to read between the lines, wonder how many more cheap companies don't want to increase wages for their employees, instead threatening to leave their states if they don't get massive tax breaks
