INDIANAPOLIS -- Anger – anxiety – and fear. Those are the feelings carrier workers are dealing with every day.
The company's decision to move to Mexico has triggered an avalanche of questions: What's next? Will another company do the same thing? And can anyone stop it?
It's a crucial fight in Indiana when you consider this: One-in-five Hoosiers works in manufacturing.
We've heard the number for months – 2,100 jobs in Indianapolis and Huntington heading to Mexico.
Now, for the first time ever, some of those workers walk us through those heartbreaking moments the day the silence on the assembly lines gave way to screams of outrage.
The immediate question you asked us after that announcement: Why did carrier choose Monterrey?
So we traveled 1,200 hundred miles to track down the answers. The region of 5 million people – about the size of Indiana – is Mexico's economic engine.
Our drone flew over one of Carrier's four facilities. These are not small operations. Their specialty is making roof-top air conditioners.
Soon, Monterrey will build the furnaces now made in Indianapolis.
