Ohio has been on the growth mode as of late. When GM announced the closing of a auto plant two years ago, President Trump met with the GM CEO. She told the President be patient. Tell the workers to not sell your house. Stay put. President Trump passed on the good news. He said don't sell your house. Good paying jobs were on the way. Half the workforce listened. The rest did sell their house and did move.
So what's changed? Lordstown Motors bought the GM plant to build trucks. 800 jobs. Foxconn bought the plant from Lordstown and hired 600 plant workers. Lordstown Motors became a Marketing Engineering Corporation. 600 jobs. Foxconn announces that two more companies would be manufacturing cars and tractors. 1,500 jobs.
And GM? They built a battery plant and 800 folks are already working. And of course we also have Amazon with a distribution center, plus TJ Max with their distribution center. Between the two you have almost 2,000 jobs.
And we can't forget Intel who's bringing 7,000 jobs to the Columbus, Ohio area. Plus when a new job is created, you have 7-14 spin off jobs. What does all the new jobs have in common? All created by Republican office holders.
