Pence, Trump Used Carrots and Possible Stick to Convince Carrier to Leave Close to 1000 Jobs in the US

Carrier was singled out by Trump repeatedly on the campaign trail due to its plan to shutter a US factory and move it to Mexico.

Carrier has now said it's reached a "compromise" and will be keeping almost 1000 jobs in Indiana. (They had until now employed 1,400 there.)

Carrier's mind seems to have been changed by Pence offering some level of subsidy to the company (a tax break or what not; terms are undisclosed) and United Technology -- Carrier's parent corporation -- realizing that their big, huge military contracts might be in jeopardy if they moved the plant out of the US.
