Washington, D.C. –U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly released the following statement about the news that Carrier plans to keep hundreds of jobs in Indiana.
Donnelly said, “This is welcome news for the Hoosier workers who will keep their jobs, and I’m eager to learn the specific details of the agreement. For many months I have been fighting alongside the Carrier workers and pushing to keep these jobs in Indiana. While this is good news, in Indiana alone, there are at least two other companies currently planning to move Hoosier jobs out of the country. We need to change our laws to encourage companies to grow here at home. I hope President-elect Trump will work with me toward this goal, so that companies will invest in the foundation of our economy: our workers and our communities.”
