Okay, So They Ain't Happy

The Carrier Corporation is located in Indianapolis, Indiana; it makes airplane engines. As part of its stated objective of remaining competitive, the company just announced that it is moving 1,400 jobs to Monterrey, Mexico.

At a company-wide meeting, a corporate representative announced this news to their workers. Everyone was ecstatic. No really, they were almost overcome with happiness. You can hear the joy in their voices as they are informed of the move. No, really, I'm not kidding. Once you listen to the video you too will be amazed at the overwhelming love and support displayed by the rank and file as they find out they will soon be unemployed.

You probably don't want to run the video at work as the rampant happy-happy joy joy is very contagious.

Story here.

It looks like West Virginia will soon be a "right-to-work" state which is also doing away with "prevailing wage" in government contracts. So, while we keep losing jobs, those that remain will soon pay less.

Are they relocating all of the (happy) workers to Mexico where they can live the high life?

Can you say "Obamanation"?

I see a lot of Trump voters there in that crowd.

Just thank the unions for that one. Oh yeah, and the democratic party that is owned by the unions. Priced themselves right out of work.
