IDP Statement on Trump-Pence Carrier Event

INDIANAPOLIS – John Zody, Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party, released the following statement after today’s Carrier announcement by Mike Pence and Donald Trump.

“Today’s announcement is great news for the Hoosier families and workers who will get to keep their jobs – though we are disappointed the company will still ship a good portion of jobs abroad. We hope that moving forward, all workers will have a seat at the table and that a Trump-Pence Administration will follow the lead of common–sense Hoosiers like Joe Donnelly and Andre Carson, who have been working to hold Carrier accountable since the moment their announcement was made to ship jobs to Mexico. We also hope the state will act in a transparent fashion with respect to awarding taxpayer–funded incentives that, as Mayor Joe Hogsett is doing, will be clawed back when a company decides to cut Hoosier jobs.”
