President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence recently reached a deal with Carrier Corp., which includes a $7 million incentives package to keep jobs in Indiana instead of sending them to Mexico. Steve Weitzner discusses the dangerous precedent of rewarding companies that threaten to leave and notes that the Carrier Deal rewarded a company that is actually cutting a lot of jobs in the state. Steve's comments were also picked up by SFGATE, The Seattle Times, Philly.com, and other publications.
