Donald Trump Challenges Rexnord for Moving Jobs to Mexico

Fresh off his victory with Carrier, President-elect Donald Trump is targeting Rexnord, another manufacturing company announcing plans to move its factory to Mexico.

“Rexnord of Indiana is moving to Mexico and rather viciously firing all of its 300 workers,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Friday night. “This is happening all over our country. No more!”

Rexnord, a company in Indianapolis, announced plans in October to move 300 union jobs and 75-80 supervisory jobs to Mexico, citing cheaper wages as the reason for leaving the United States.

In Mexico, Rexnord can get workers to accept $2.50-$3.00 and hour, along with benefits, while workers in the United States are making $25 an hour and benefits, according to United Steel Workers Union President Chuck Jones.

The move to Mexico is scheduled to be completed in June.

During his presidential campaign, Trump vowed to be “the greatest jobs president that God ever created” and vowed to stop companies from leaving the country.
