Trump, Carrier Reach Deal To Keep 1,000 Jobs In Indianapolis

Nov 29, 2016

President-elect Donald Trump has reportedly reached a deal to stop some Carrier factory jobs from leaving Indiana.

The Carrier company confirmed in a tweet Tuesday night that it had worked out a plan with Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence to keep close to 1,000 jobs in Indianapolis.

The company told workers earlier this year it planned to cut around 2,000 Indiana jobs and move operations to Mexico to save money. A video of that announcement went viral, and the Carrier layoffs became a focal issue for Trump and other candidates on the campaign trail.

No details on the new agreement with Carrier were immediately available, but Trump and Pence will reportedly appear at the factory Thursday to announce more information.
