Poor Policy

carrier-trumpTrump’s decision to essentially force Carrier to preserve 800 manufacturing jobs in Indianapolis is bad policy.

Lastly, to globally compete but with higher costs, the plant in Indianapolis will automate much of the assembly process, requiring new workers with better technical skills.
