    Default Carrier To Close Indiana Plants, Move Jobs to Mexico

    I actually saw an article on another union website that companies that do heating and air conditioning are boycotting this company.

    Two subsidiaries of Farmington-based United Technologies Corp. are shutting heating and ventilating parts manufacturing plants in Indiana, eliminating more than 2,000 jobs as operations move to Mexico.

    Carrier, a manufacturer of heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration, said it will relocate its Indianapolis manufacturing operations to a site near its manufacturing plants in Monterrey, Mexico, over three years beginning in 2017.

    Chris Nelson, president of heating, ventilating and air-conditioning systems and services in North America, said the move is intended to address the continued migration of the industry, including suppliers and competitors, to Mexico. He also cited cost and pricing pressures caused partly by new regulations.

    "This decision is difficult and we recognize the impact on employees, their families and the community," he said.

    ANDERSON — Companies in Madison County who manufacture heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment are boycotting Carrier after the company announced it was moving from Indianapolis to Mexico, taking 1,400 jobs with it.

    R.D. Poffenbarger, owner of 911 Heating and Cooling in Anderson, said he is taking a stand to support the Carrier employees whose jobs are being shipped overseas. The issue hits especially close to home for the Anderson native who saw what happened when Delco left the city.

    “I had friends, friends’ parents who were left without work when (they) left and this brings back those thoughts,” Poffenbarger said.

    Union: Carrier said they will pay Mexican workers $6 an hour
    Carrier announced last week they’d shutter their Indianapolis plant in the coming years and move at least 1,400 jobs to Mexico by 2019. The move drew national backlash.

    Tuesday, Carrier told the union that the closure is basically a done deal, explaining that the average worker in Indianapolis makes more than $20 an hour, and that Mexican workers can be paid $6 an hour.

    “I’ve been through this three times,” said Lewis Douthitt, a current Carrier employee.

    It’s an all too familiar scene for Douthitt. He came to Carrier, hoping the stop there would be his last.

    Where was the outcry when Indiana wooed these jobs from Syracuse NY.. I know they already had the plant there but most of the jobs that left NY went to Indiana.. Another company that shifted all their manufacturing from CT to Indiana is Pitney Bowes.. How soon will it be when they also move to Mexico.. Just another reason why we need someone like TRUMP...

    Talking Re: Carrier To Close Indiana Plants, Move Jobs to Mexico

    Well all I can say, this country ain't gonna get fix with old money Heritage pass down to next generation, because the next generation will run this country the same or even worst.
    None of this candidacy will make any difference to this country !!
    We need new blood from the general population of our country, we the people are the Government.
    The people need to hand pick leaders from our local city we live in, come on, even here on our site we have smart kids that have proper highly education with bachelor and master's degrees.
    We really need leaders that are not corporate America run or Bankster controlled.
    But this is only my opinion, because if we are depending for a miracle from our new candidacy...hmmm

    I personally think this should be the law in every state. If a company gets tax breaks and then heads south of the border later (or even relocates to another state), pay every last dime back to that state and it's tax payers!

    After Announcing Thousands of Layoffs in Indiana, Company Pledges to Return Taxpayer Money
    United Technologies promised last week to return nearly $1.6 million in incentives to local and state governments after it announced it will ship 2,100 middle class manufacturing jobs from Indiana to Mexico.

    United Technologies officials met with Indiana Gov. Mike Pence last week to discuss the layoffs. At that meeting, the company agreed to reimburse the taxpayer funds, which include $1.2 million in tax abatements and $382,000 in training grants.

    Unfortunately, it looks like the jobs are still headed to Mexico. “I don’t want to create false hope. I wouldn’t say I came away from the meeting more hopeful than I went in,” Pence said after the meeting.

    Carrier Shutdown Sheds New Light on Trade Fight

    Personally I think if there are people out there that really didn't get it before Carrier decided to take good jobs to Mexico, then they have had their heads buried in sand for years.
    The discussion of lost jobs due to bad trade deals can often seem like an academic exercise, with statistics spewed about how agreements like NAFTA or the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) have or will impact jobs.

    But a very real world example about the damaging effects of trade came to light last month, when air conditioning manufacturer Carrier announced it was closing two facilities in Indianapolis beginning next year and moving them the Mexico. Some 2,100 U.S. workers earning middle-class wages would lose their jobs because of it.

    The company’s announcement of the closing was taped by workers, who became understandably irate by the news. The video went viral, and America now had a real-life understanding of how trade can hurt everyday Americans.

    A recent New York Times article explains how that moment has fueled the bipartisan brush fire growing against past and proposed trade deals:

    I can think of one on this site for example? Not so much buried in the sand. More like buried in corporate America.

    In 2012 right to work advocates assured hoosiers that legislating right to work would be the magic elixir.
    Economic boom, high wages, plentiful jobs, companies beating a path to Indiana, streets paved with
    gold. If only Indiana was a right to work state. Now it is.

    So, how can this be? How can a company leave a right to work state?
    How can Carrier leave such corporate utopia??
