TAKE ACTION: Companies That Offshore Shouldn't Keep Taxpayer Dollars
It was bad enough when Indiana companies Carrier Corporation and United Technologies Electronic Controls announced that they are closing their Hoosier State factories and moving 2,100 jobs to Mexico. But the companies also received more than half a million dollars in state incentives!
This isn't right. Companies that offshore jobs shouldn't be rewarded with taxpayer money designed to support those who do the right thing by manufacturing their products in the United States.
Carrier and United Technologies Electronic Controls, both part of the United Technologies Corp., should reconsider sending these jobs overseas. But if they don't, at the very least they should return any taxpayer funding they took as an incentive to manufacture in Indiana.
