Intel Announces $7 Billion Investment Creating 10,000 New Jobs

Washington, DC...The past 8 years have taken a toll on American workers. But now, we have already begun bringing OUR jobs back to OUR country.Today we are excited to announce that Intel has pledged to make a $7 billion investment in Arizona, creating 10,000 jobs!



Companies across America are making the commitment to creating thousands of new jobs everyday:
11/29/2016: Carrier pledges to create 1,000 new jobs
12/28/2016: Sprint and OneWeb announces creating and saving of 8,000 jobs
01/17/2017: GM pledges $1 billion in manufacturing to create 1,500 new jobs
02/08/2017: Intel announces $7 Billion investment in 10,000 new jobs in Arizona
President Trump made a promise to this country – bring jobs back to America. The spirit of optimism sweeping the country is already boosting job growth, and it is only the beginning.

Over the next 4 years, President Trump is committed to creating new policies and embracing challenges in the labor force that will put America First in job creation, growth and innovation.

We are getting America back to work. And with each new success, we continue to make America great again.

    Wait a minute. Intel says this will create 3,000 jobs; not 10,000. And as we are playing games, lets not forget that Intel's facility in Albuquerque which once had 7,000 employees, is now down to 2,300, and is facing another round of cuts. These are not net-net new jobs. This is just moving the chairs on the deck around. More than half of Intel's workforce is overseas including China.

    Should we also mention this Chandler plant was initiated (and largely built) five years ago under an initiative by President Obama?

    I don't mind giving Mr. Trump due credit for things he is really doing. But this country is into much too serious a hole for its leaders to be playing games.

          You said it yourself, during the Obama administration it went from 7,000 to 2,300 and now, even at 3000 jobs we are more than doubling the workforce. We are finally seeing a real upswing, let's enjoy it...

            You can't reason with a Democrat. Just look who they put in the house as minority chair. Brain dead

            Actually most of the employment decline happened during the GW Bush administration. Sorry to disappoint you.

      Wait a minute, you are just another Democrat that can't stand the fact that a Republican is trying to Make America Great Again. Hillary lost so get over it.

      I checked Reuters and Charles Schwab to get more details on these postings.
      Either this is old news (not 2017) or there's something weird occurring.
      Normally a large investment and job creation by a company are posted in the financial press. The only claim I could substantiate that is 'new' is the Intel one, and it's somewhat overstated as pointed out elsewhere.
      The Carrier claim is most likely the one made in 2016: 1300 jobs going to Mexico; 300 low paying mfrg jobs and 800 administrative/management positions staying in IN.
      It is very likely Trump is taking credit where it is not deserved. There is so much flak about his actions to date, that he needs to find a way to try and get back in favor of the citizenry. Doesn't have to be true . . . which is more likely the case.

      You're a racist for even mentioning it.

Still the spin continues. What's not mentioned is that these decisions were made a year and two ago - big companies don't turn on a dime and respond to rhetoric. Many more jobs are still going elsewhere; these are simply the numbers that work for Trump's Tweets. Also - and please do your research - more manufacturing jobs have been lost to robotics than China or other countries as technology makes production more efficient. One also doesn't have to pay robots pensions and health benefits.

Intel - The Facts
Posted on: 2017-02-09 08:43:24   By: Anonymous
 
Chief Executive Officer Brian Krzanich, speaking at the White House, said the company would invest $7 billion in an Arizona factory, which will employ 3,000 people at its peak, according to Reuters. The Arizona will also create 7,000 support jobs on the supply side.
So, 10,000 yes, but not 10,000 mfrg. jobs.
One must look into the WH claims, to know exactly what is occurring. Support jobs can be at a distribution center, a secretary . . . typically low paying.
