1 Carrier to lay off 300 jobs... on 3/29/2017, 9:14 am

All this "winning"  I don't know if I can stand it! Crying or Very sad

snippet>
The Local 1999 also represents workers at Carrier Corp.’s furnace factory about a mile from the Rexnord plant. In November, Trump did manage to strike a deal with Carrier’s parent company, United Technologies, to make the company cancel its plan to close the Carrier plant. Hundreds of Carrier workers will still be laid off later this year.

Technology and the natural shift to renewables will happen naturally.

There's no need to freak out.

The Borg Warner plant I worked with in the early seventies moved to Mexico. Carrier was one of their biggest customers. The Mexican worker is highly intelligent and hard working. When I lived in Mexico, I got to know some executives of International Harvester who were running a tractor factory in Mexico, in the early seventies, and they were kicking asz compared to production in America. It took them about five years to get the quality, but once trained, they really were quite productive. I have worked in factories. I have put metalworking parts in grinders and hones hour after hour of repetitive motion and very little discretion. Even back in the late sixties and early seventies, folks just could not adjust to the grind of manufacturing, and would quit after a couple of weeks despite incredible wages. Sadly, I think American youth are less prepared for manufacturing than they have ever been. Fortunately, manufacturing is becoming much more sophisticated and more challenging than standing and feeding a machine for hours. I was going to get transferred to KY at a Borg Warner York air conditioning plant, and it was a plant which ran away from the unions in coal mining country. I toured the plant, and toured the town, and respectfully declined the position. This was in 1977, and even then they were seeking the lowest labor rates. Best decision I ever made.

Trump's grand display of saving manufacturing jobs at Carrier was nothing but a dog and pony show.

Globalization doesn't give a shit about dog and pony shows.

A simple acknowledgement of reality elicited that dipshit comment?

You are an idiot.

Come July, President Trump owns the economic numbers and job creation. He is total bull chit right now, and as soon as the numbers show otherwise, I will give credit where credit is due.
