More companies announce the adding of US jobs
As Donald J. Trump continues to settle in at the White House, companies are still announcing new jobs and larger investments in America, many citing the president as their reason.The list goes on with other companies also adding thousands of new jobs. The list apparently does not include the jobs added by those paying demonstrators to oppose Trump but the number also appears to be in the thousands. Perhaps Trump should get credit for those too.
Before Donald Trump even took the oath of office, several companies announced new investments in America, some reversing plans to build facilities and create jobs in foreign countries. Such companies as Carrier Air Conditioners, Telecom company SoftBank, U.S. Steel, and others quickly announced tens of thousands of new jobs and billions in investments in the U.S.
The Trump jobs boom continued after inauguration day with Ford Motors, Amazon.com, aerospace company Lockheed Martin, Walmart, and others jumping into the jobs boom.
And as we approach Trump’s third week in office, the jobs boom continues.
Fiat-Chrysler announced in January that it would invest $1 billion in plants in Michigan and Ohio. The investment is expected to add up to 2,000 jobs to the company’s U.S. workforce.
Supermarket giant Kroger has announced that it is adding about 10,000 full-time workers in the coming year.
“Kroger’s growth trajectory continues to create opportunities for our people to advance their careers — and to do that in a fun, team environment with great benefits,” Kroger group vice president of human resources and labor relations Tim Massa said in a press release.
One of Apple computer company’s biggest suppliers, Foxconn, has announced a $7 billion investment in the U.S. with plans to build a new factory in America and offering up to 50,000 new jobs.
At the end of January, Foxconn CEO Terry Gou said that the company may build its new plant in Pennsylvania, but other options are still being considered.
