Workers celebrated at Indianapolis’s Carrier factory Thursday when President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence announced a deal to save more than 1,000 of their jobs.
Dawnn Kinnard is a second-generation Carrier worker whose father still works there too, after 44 years. After listening to Trump speak, she says she was heartbroken when she first found out they’d lose their jobs.
“Today I’m elated, really just to get my dad to be able to retire when he wants to retire,” Kinnard says.
