But as more and more workers find themselves unwanted and unneeded in a global setting of a race-to-the-bottom for wages and the rise of robotic labor, it is worth noting how little those at the top of the corporate heap care about the ordinary people they are affecting.
Maybe some day good jobs will return to America, but for today, workers are just seeing things slip away. The impact spans many decades, and affects hundreds of millions of people. And it will hurt terribly.
Mediaite reports on the "exact moment" when employees hurled angry slogans at the empty suit pretending to care during the announcement:
A cell phone video taken at Carrier Air Conditioner in Indianapolis shows the exact moment that the plant and union workers were told that the company had decided to shift production south of the border. "The best way to stay competitive and protect the business for longterm is to move production from our facility in Indianapolis to Monterrey, Mexico," says the company representative at the microphone.
