President Voorhies calls bluff on Trump's 1,100 jobs claim
“The Indiana AFL-CIO remains cautiously optimistic of the deal struck between president-elect Donald Trump and Carrier executives. Though we are elated that 1,100 working people and their families now know their jobs are safe this holiday season, it’s important to note that 300 of those jobs were already set to stay. Equally important, we are saddened to hear that 1,370 people between the two plants in Huntington and Indianapolis will still lose their jobs to Mexico.
Since Carrier’s announcement in February, several plants in Indiana have announced they will leave the country, leaving thousands more Hoosiers without a job. Until every working family in America feels secure knowing their job will remain in the US, we will expect the president-elect to uphold his campaign promise.”
