Indiana Governor Mike Pence says after meeting with Carrier officials, some 400 “high paying” jobs will stay in Indiana.
Carrier announced last month that it was closing facilities in Indianapolis and Huntington, IN, relocating those jobs to Mexico.
Pence met with Carrier officials in his office this morning. In addition to those 400 jobs, Pence says Carrier will pay back more than $300,000 in job training tax credits to the state as well as reimburse local officials for any tax credits they provided.
Pence says Carrier did not blame the job relocation on Indiana’s business climate, but instead federal regulations.
