INDIANAPOLIS -- Carrier employees and supporters rallied Friday in protest of the company's decision to move thousands of jobs to Mexico.

Bernie Sanders also addressed the crowd.

Carrier decided in February to move 1,400 Indianapolis jobs (2,100 in total) to Monterrey, Mexico. RTV6 has been covering the story from the moment in broke with a viral video of the announcement to the employees of Indy's plant. 

Organizers told us the goal of Friday's event was to urgently push for rewriting trade rules.
