MORE OUTRAGE! Carrier Got $5 Million In Obama Stimulus Cash Before Moving American Jobs To Mexico
America is bleeding “red ink” and no one within government seems to care, the latest victim to fall prey to the Obama economy is the iconic heating and air-conditioning company Carrier, which just announced it will move its operation from Indianapolis to Mexico, taking with it over 1,400 American jobs.
Ironically the “Department of Energy awarded Carrier $5.1 million in clean energy tax credits in December 2013” for its Indianapolis facility, at the time the company announced they planned to use the money to “expand production at its Indianapolis facility to meet increasing demand for its eco-friendly condensing gas furnace product line.”
Carrier “employs 50,000 people in more than 180 countries.”
They chose to close the Indianapolis operation because of cost.
The announcement of the closing caught everyone by surprise, including Mayor Joe Hogsett;
“While I am obviously concerned about the economic impact, my top priority is the well-being of the hardworking families affected by this decision. A job lost in any part of our community affects us all, and I believe these are the times we must come together as one city to lift up our neighbors.”
While most will in all probability fault Carrier, the true culprit are those incompetent bureaucrats in Washington who have all but destroyed the American Dream, with intrusive mandates and regulations, combined with punitive tax rates, that simply drives businesses away.
For those who have not seen this video of Carrier employees reaction when they learn their jobs have been shipped to Mexico here it is:
