The global economy hits home, and it’s not pretty.
Recently, workers at an Indianapolis plant operated by Carrier, an air-conditioning manufacturer, came to work like any other day. Except it wasn’t like any other day. Instead, they got to hear a speech explaining that they were losing their jobs because the company was moving the factory to Monterrey, Mexico, to save money. Carrier is owned by United Technologies Company, which made $7.6 billion last year.
