AMERICA GREAT AGAIN: Trump Comes Through On MAJOR Campaign Promise That Has Supporters REJOICING

Like this article?



Trump made employment issues a central focus of his campaign during the run-up to the election. He promised to scrap trade deals he viewed as draining jobs from the economy and to impose tariffs on imports if necessary.

True to his word, he has already prevented thousands of manufacturing jobs from moving overseas and struck a deal with Carrier to pull back on its plans to move some operations to Mexico and he’s not even sworn in as president yet.

One day before the President-elect will meets with tech industry leaders, another corporation unveiled its plan to ‘Make America Great Again.’

US technology giant IBM announced Tuesday that it will hire 25,000 Americans over the next four years and invest $1 billion dollars to fill technology jobs in the U.S.

IBM chief Ginni Rometty said in an op-ed published in USA Today, that approximately 6,000 of those hiring will take place in 2016 and the company will invest $1 billion on training employees and development in the next four years.

“We are hiring because the nature of work is evolving — and that is also why so many of these jobs remain hard to fill,” Rometty wrote. “As industries from manufacturing to agriculture are reshaped by data science and cloud computing, jobs are being created that demand new skills — which in turn requires new approaches to education, training and recruiting.”

“This is not about white collar vs. blue collar jobs, but about the ‘new collar’ jobs that employers in many industries demand, but which remain largely unfilled,” she added, noting that as many as one-third of all IBM employees lack a formal college degree. “What matters most is that these employees — with jobs such as cloud computing technicians and services delivery specialists — have relevant skills, often obtained through vocational training.”

IBM’s plan to invest in the U.S. is a complete turnaround from what it was set to do earlier this year. The tech company said in March that it had more than 25,000 positions open globally and had already started to lay off American workers in an effort to “workforce rebalance” and add staff with specific skills.

Rometty is an advisor of Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum, a group of US business leaders who are intent on boosting U.S. economic growth and creating jobs.

Trump’s highly anticipated summit with the leaders of several major technology companies in New York on Wednesday is said to focus on jobs and companies incentive to invest billions in the U.S. Tech leaders that will be in attendance include Facebook Inc.’s Sheryl Sandberg, Apple’s Tim Cook, Microsoft’s Satya Nadella, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Tesla’s Elon Musk and Google’s Larry Page.

Trump will be stepping into hostile territory. The tech sector overwhelming supported Hillary Clinton during this year’s presidential race.

Earlier this month Republican property tycoon-turned-next US president promised a 35 percent tariff on companies that move overseas then try to sell their products in the U.S.

Now that the socialist is leaving the White House and a capitalist is entering, the winning is already getting out of control…

Businesses will invest in American workers, or pay the price. Hillary would have closed business and increased taxes for everyone, regardless of your financial status.

God Bless.
