Carrier getting $7 million in state incentives to stay open

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Indiana is offering Carrier $7 million in incentives to keep some jobs in Indiana that the company had planned to shift to Mexico.

A company spokesman says the offer was made to the air conditioning and furnace maker after negotiations with President-elect Donald Trump.

He and Vice President-elect Mike Pence are announcing the deal today in Indianapolis.

The Associated Press previously reported the deal will involve keeping about 800 union positions in Indianapolis that were to be outsourced. Trump made Carrier’s plans to shutter the Indianapolis plant a central issue of his campaign.
