How Trump plans to punish firms that leave US

Trump's tweetstorm echoed what he told workers assembled at the Indianapolis plant of the air-conditioning company Carrier last week, after striking a deal with the company to keep approximately 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis.

This week, his transition team heralded a deal with Carrier, a manufacturer of air-conditioning units which planned to close an IN plant and move jobs and manufacturing to Mexico.

Carrier has agreed to retain at least 1,069 jobs - 300 of which already were slated to remain in IN - for 10 years at an average salary of $30 per hour.

The 1,000 or so Carrier factory workers who will now keep their jobs in IN may not waste time on such ideals. "We got to do something.' And I said, "Because we just can't let it happen". All CFDs (stocks, indexes, futures) and Forex prices are not provided by exchanges but rather by market makers, and so prices may not be accurate and may differ from the actual market price, meaning prices are indicative and not appropriate for trading purposes.

"Please be forewarned prior to making a very expensive mistake!" he wrote. Then the Trump administration will pledge some valuable incentive that "saves" most of those jobs. Carrier also will spend $16 million on factory upgrades.

Carrier's statement about the need to improve the "competitiveness of the US and of American workers" is unsettling if it means bringing our business climate and labor costs more in line with Mexico's, or demanding government subsidies.

But he is concerned about it was forged.

I think the era of strong-arm political blackmail is here. And Carrier has already received $5.1 million for advanced manufacturing from the feds as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which Pence voted against when he was congressman.

For example, the Wall Street Journal editorial page last week railed against Trump's tax proposal for offshorers, arguing that politicians shouldn't interfere with companies' business decisions to maximize their profits.

Though Trump is not in office yet, some in workers are already banking on that impact. An additional 300 positions will also be housed in Indianapolis, but the union says those jobs were never headed to Mexico. Mathis says he hopes Trump will keep following through on his promises. Trump himself said during the campaign that "stupid politicians" give tax breaks and other incentives to win jobs. But it's not all rosy - 600 jobs at the Indianapolis plant will still be outsourced to Mexico. They may not want to comply with pesky regulations that force them to make more energy-efficient furnaces and air-conditioners.
