Obviously, the best way President-elect Trump could move the American economy out of the red and back towards the profitable black column would be to put American workers back to work and bring offshore American manufacturers back to the good old US of A.
That is exactly what Donald Trump has promised to do and just the fact that he was elected seems to have had a positive effect as optimism has surged and companies are hiring again. We’ve already heard from Carrier, Ford, and many others who are planning to either bring jobs to the United States, or expand their firms within the United States. It’s been a win-win-win situation: For Trump, American Workers, and Job Creators.
It is interesting to note that after Alibaba, Amazon’s top competitor from China has promised to bring one million jobs to America, Amazon has swiftly replied with an announcement of their own:
They are planning to add 100,000 jobs to its workforce.
Via The Wall Street Journal:
The additional jobs would swell Amazon’s U.S. workforce, which stood at 180,000 last year. The Seattle-based company said that many of the new jobs will be at already announced warehouses under construction in Texas, California, Florida, New Jersey and elsewhere.
“Innovation is one of our guiding principles at Amazon, and it’s created hundreds of thousands of American jobs,” said Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. He added that some of the new jobs would be in areas such as cloud technology, machine learning, and advanced logistics.
Mr. Bezos said in a statement at the time that Mr. Trump’s promised focus on innovation “would create a huge number of jobs across the whole country, in all sectors, not just tech—agriculture, infrastructure, manufacturing—everywhere.”
The biggest source of jobs at Amazon is its warehouses, which process and ship orders. Amazon opened about two dozen new warehouses in the third quarter of last year, prompting costs to soar in part due to those investments, the company said. That brought its total number of warehouses globally to about 150.
We can begin to see that Trump’s pledge to keep American companies from using cheap foreign labor is already having a positive effect as top executives are seeing the signs of a more business-friendly climate developing here at home in America.
Company execs are taking the opportunity to invest in and expand their companies which translates into more jobs, which is always good news!
