Trump says he’s stopping jobs from going abroad. Here’s the truth.

Trump says he’s stopping jobs from going abroad. Here’s the truth.

CTS Corporation factory in Elkhart, Indiana shut down production one afternoon in June of last year.
That “never happens, unless it’s a holiday or something,” Vanacker said. “Even on weekends they don’t shut down all production.”
All of the sensor and actuator plant’s employees were asked to attend a town hall style meeting with a company vice president. It was there that they found out that everyone at the factory would be losing their jobs beginning in January 2017. The work will instead be moved to factories in Mexico, China, and Taiwan.
Employees were blindsided by the announcement. “We had no clue, none at all,” Haines said.
The company knew the news would be difficult to swallow. “They asked us, everyone, to leave the building after the meeting,” Vanacker said. Production was kept idled for the rest of the weekend. “They locked the gates so no one could get in, which they haven’t done in years.” It seemed they were worried about angry employees who had all just learned they were losing their jobs.
