Workers at the Carrier’s plant in Indianapolis, Indiana, are bracing themselves for a massive round of layoffs next month—despite the fact that President Trump had claimed that he had saved the jobs at the plant. As many as 600 workers will be laid off next month. President Trump had also announced a $16 million investment in the plant, allegedly to save jobs. But, in fact, Carrier’s parent company says that money is going to go to factory automation, which will actually reduce the number of jobs at the plant overall.Meanwhile, car manufacturer Ford has announced it will be moving some of its manufacturing operations to China. This comes after Trump tried to claim credit for Ford’s decision earlier this spring to cancel its plans to build a factory in Mexico, tweeting, “Big announcement by Ford today. Major investment to be made in three Michigan plants. Car companies coming back to U.S. JOBS! JOBS! JOBS!” In fact, Ford simply decided to outsource the jobs to China.
