The numbers below are just that, numbers. No fanatsy, no agenda, just numbers. I am beginning to wonder if the 4.8% unemployment number is meant to represent foreign and illegal alien workers only.

bartender usandforeignworkersOn Wednesday, United Technologies decided to reinforce both of these trends all at once, when the company announced it would be eliminating 1,400 jobs at a Carrier plant in Indianapolis in favor of hiring some new “foreign-born” employees – only these “foreign-born” workers will be hired in Mexico.

Two Indiana plants that make products for the heating, ventilating and air conditioning industry are shifting their manufacturing operations to Mexico, which will cost about 2,100 workers their jobs,” The Indianapolis Star reports. “Carrier is shuttering its manufacturing facility on Indianapolis’ west side, eliminating about 1,400 jobs during the next three years [and] United Technologies Electronic Controls said that it will move its Huntington manufacturing operations to a new plant in Mexico, costing the northeastern Indiana city 700 jobs by 2018.”

I am somewhat conflicted on this one. I know there is a Union involved in this decision. Everytime I hear the word it makes my gut wrench. The day of union organization is coming to a quick end. The Progressive element in this Nation has done everything they can to tear us apart from the inside out and Unions are one of those knives.

That said, what I saw in the video below made me sink. My prayers are with the people in Indiana and the United States of America.
