Carrier, in Deal with Trump, Will Keep Some Jobs in Indiana

The Associated Press is reporting that air-conditioner manufacturer Carrier Corp. has reached a deal with President-elect Donald Trump to keep nearly 1,000 jobs in Indiana.

The details of the Carrier agreement are still unclear, AP reports.  The entire AP feature is at the link below.
