DNC Statement on Carrier Layoffs at Indianapolis Manufacturing Plant

In response to Carrier laying off more than 200 employees from its Indianapolis facility today, DNC spokesperson Daniel Wessel released the following statement:

“A little over a year ago Donald Trump promised these very workers he would save their jobs. Hundreds of layoffs later, we now know he lied, and all for a quick photo op. Trump and Pence have claimed they would protect American workers, but the story in Indianapolis is the same story we are seeing all across the country. Tax cuts for the rich and big corporations is not a jobs plan. Fanfare and empty rhetoric will not help these workers whose livelihoods are on the line. American workers need real solutions and a president who is going to fight for them, even when the cameras turn off. While Trump and Pence continue their streak of broken promises, Democrats will continue to stand by American workers and fight to create more good-paying jobs right here in America.”
