Watch Live: Donald Trump Announces Plan to Keep Carrier Jobs in the U.S.

Dec 01, 2016

President-elect Donald Trump is expected to announce a deal with Carrier Thursday that would keep a significant chunk of the air-conditioning giant's jobs in the U.S.

Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence will speak at Carrier's Indianapolis plant, revealing a plan to keep more than 1,000 jobs in the country. Carrier had previously said it planned to move more than 2,000 of its positions from Indiana, where Pence is governor, to Mexico.

Carrier's worker's cheered on the news. On the campaign trail, Trump promised to keep manufacturing jobs in the U.S. after a decades-long trend of companies moving jobs into international markets, where labor is cheaper.

"We have negotiated an agreement with the incoming administration that we believe benefits our workers, the state of Indiana and our company," representatives from Carrier wrote in a statement Wednesday.
