    Thank you Mr.Trump ! Reducing jobs by American businesses must be part of Trumpeizdas plan to MAGA, Just was we need a couple weeks before Christmas.
    Another failure by the Trump Administration. Just like Carrier, Ford and every other company that is shedding jobs and the Trump Administration is running around trying to take credit for the jobs that were not eliminate.

    You promised to drain the swamp but instead you are drowning us in the cesspool, thanks a lot!


    Oh and this must be your plan of we can say Merry Christmas again. So you are saying Merry Christmas losers you are fired.

    Anyone else disgusted with the failures of this Trump administration?

    12,000 jobs cut in anticipation of the coming corporate tax cuts. Weren't we told that those tax cuts would go directly to jobs creation?

    Of course, anyone who has studied history of the last two attempts with major tax cuts could have predicted that these cuts go to enriching executives and share holders, rather than workers.

    The GOP voters have been snowed again. Next year, they'll be rewarded more by cuts to their SS checks and Medicare.

    12,000 world wide. GE cut 18,000 US jobs under Obama. Didn’t hear you whine then.

    Guess nobody read the article. 12,000 world wide. Because of overcapacity, renewable energy, and market softening. All you had to do was click the link in the OP. Sorry Hoosier and toefoot, you are just too fast.

    Well duh, they are a global company. Some of these are not job cuts but selling of divisions.

    So I guess your point is the globalism pushed by the left is causing job loss. Are you sure you want to complain about that?

    Thank you Obama and the liberal/socialist Progressive Globalist Agenda.

    I'm guessing you probably shouldn't have brought this up.

    Oh I get it. So why are you falling for the "partisan shiny object"? Are you sure you want to confirm that?

    Interesting. The Green renewable energy that the Left is all in for....costs jobs elsewhere?

    I did read the article, did you? I asked a simple yes/no question regarding the article and you didn't answer the question, so I have my doubts if you read it, or understood it.


    Well, I didn't say it was his fault but I will say he is responsible. Here's a local article: http://www.mitchellrepublic.com/new...ind-energy-plant-closing-leaving-409-out-work
    "Also affecting the shutdown was the phasing out of the renewable electricity production tax credit given to companies that manufacture for the wind energy industry." According to local radio that is the result of the recent tax cuts.
    Chocolate Chip please.

    Well, if Trump takes credit for jobs that are created, which he did, he'll also have to take the blame when jobs are destroyed, even if it is not directly his fault. He and his supporters can't have it both ways.

    Oh yes here we go again the west dream and anticipation of trickle down stimulation resulting from the failed policy of economic tax policy masterbation resulting in failure failure failure across the entire nation.

    Really seriously folks this measly amount of tax "reduction" will not stimulate job creation. It virtually never does.
