Carrier layoffs: Hundreds out of a job, a year after Trump deal

New layoffs at Indiana Carrier factory year after Trump deal

More than 200 workers will lose their jobs at a Carrier factory in Indianapolis this week despite President Donald Trump heralding a deal in 2016 to save jobs at the facility by keeping it from shutting down. That's down from some 1,600 factory and office jobs when Carrier announced plans in early 2016 to move production to Mexico. Those jobs, along with 338 manufacturing workers laid off in July, will be outsourced to the company's plant in Monterrey, Mexico, where workers make about $3 an hour, in union officials told Reuters. Chuck Jones, president of the United Steelworkers 1999, which represents Carrier employees, said Trump lied and far less had been saved.

"We continue to actively engage with our workers and the community to provide impacted employees with resources to make a smooth transition", the company said in a statement. "We just thought he was going to protect our jobs".

Trump was indeed successful in rescuing hundreds of jobs in Carrier, but the manufacturing employees who are staring at the unemployment say they felt disappointed by a deal that commenced as presidential campaign resembling cry but the turnout was less. It sounded really good.

About 215 people are being let go starting Thursday, leaving about 1,100 workers at the plant, according to the company. They involve 730 manufacturing jobs and about 300 engineering and administrative positions that were constant.

Elliott, a 44-year-old high school graduate with a hairdresser license, told NBC that she was studying to be a nurse but is scared now that she lost her $18-an-hour day job.

Mr Trump praised the deal, under which he said 1100 jobs would be saved, as a model of how he would push American companies to keep jobs in the country.

Carrier, owned by Hartford, Connecticut-based United Technologies Corp., once had its worldwide headquarters in Syracuse.

"Yes he (Trump) saved jobs, yes he did".
