    Sure they count but there is still a hell of a lot of people losing their jobs.

    For how long ? Is it in writing ?

    Yes, they count. Out of the 92 million unemployed ( your number ... and strappy's number ) does that make any real difference, except to them ?

    When we see tens of thousands of jobs added, with good pay and benefits, then I'll be impressed.

    I prefer the caramel coated popcorn. Not an "organic" person.
    Costco trip scheduled for tomorrow.

    Back at the Carrier Plant, Workers Are Still Fighting on Their Own
    The emptiness of Trump’s made-for-reality-TV moment becomes painfully clear a few miles southwest of the union hall, where the Carrier plant sits, amid a cluster of factories and warehouses, in one of the last industrial districts in the United States. On my visit in early March, signs of the workers’ struggles aren’t immediately visible, though they’re easy enough to find. Just across the street from Carrier, workers from the Sumco plant are walking a picket line. Less than a mile away, some 300 workers at the Rexnord plant await layoff notices as the company prepares to shut down and head south.

    All in all, some 850 jobs will disappear from this square mile over the next few months, and with them 850 union members from the rolls of Local 1999—with more likely to follow. As the city braces for the shock, the workers are facing this fate largely on their own. The national media briefly made Jones a star for challenging Trump’s version of events, but their attention span isn’t much longer than Trump’s, and few reporters have returned to the area. Then again, the coverage of Carrier has always been incomplete. Carrier workers were among the key symbols of the so-called “wave” of white working-class voters who swept Trump into power. Many of the Carrier workers did vote for Trump, as did many at Rexnord, who haven’t received nearly as much media attention. Yet their story is all too often oversimplified as emblematic of white suffering in the age of the North American Free 
Trade Agreement.

    Carrier Gives State Official Notice Of Indianapolis Layoffs

    Six months after President Donald Trump intervened in Carrierís planned Indianapolis layoffs, the company is releasing the final number of jobs it still plans to cut.

    The Department of Workforce Development got the appliance-makerís official notification of the layoffs Monday, in a letter dated May 19.

    It says 632 workers will lose their jobs at Carrierís Indianapolis fan coil factory between late July and the end of the year.
    I sure as getting tired of winning.

    So how is the Great Pumkin going to spin this?

    Trump's Carrier jobs deal is not living up to the hype

    More than 600 employees at a Carrier plant in Indianapolis are bracing for layoffs beginning next month, despite being told by President Trump that nearly all the jobs at the plant had been saved. The deal, announced with great fanfare before Trump took office, was billed not only as a heroic move to keep jobs from going to Mexico but also as a seismic shift in the economic development landscape.

    Nearly seven months later the deal has not worked out quite as originally advertised, and the landscape has barely budged.

    "The jobs are still leaving," said Robert James, president of United Steelworkers Local 1999. "Nothing has stopped."

    In fact, after the layoffs are complete later this year, a few hundred union jobs will remain at the plant. But that is far different from what then-President-elect Trump said just three weeks after the election.
    F-16's to be made in India, Ford to shift the Focus to China after canceling the Mexico plant to allegedly make them in the US.

    Anyone else tired of all the winning?
