Sprint to Create, Bring Back 5000 US Jobs

Make America Great Again Trump Says Sprint Bringing Back 5,000 Jobs To The U.S

Media outlets quickly ran with the news that Trump was bringing jobs back to the us, in some cases connecting it to the president-elect's intervention at Carrier several weeks ago that kept 800 jobs at the company from moving to Mexico. He claimed that his telecommunication company Softbank will invest $50 billion in the United States and will create a total of 50,000 jobs.

Trump also announced the creation of 3,000 jobs in the tech industry, from OneWeb, which plans to set up a factory in Florida to manufacture satellites to provide cheap broadband Internet access, according to NPR.

In fact, even though Son is promising to bring 8,000 jobs to the U.S., Sprint had already shed 9,000 workers under his ownership.

Numerous jobs will likely be at call centers, work the industry has commonly outsourced to India and the Philippines and other low-wage countries with mixed success. "Sprint will begin discussions immediately with its business partners, states and cities to determine the right locations in the USA to create these jobs".

Trump has had previous business dealings with Son, whom he described on Wednesday as a "terrific guy".

Japanese internet and telecommunications giant SoftBank is investing $1 billion in OneWeb, a USA startup that aims to use satellites to provide internet access in rural and emerging markets.

Sam Allardyce says Crystal Palace 'must stop conceding goals'
Zaha has been in impressive form so far this season, bagging three goals and six assists in 16 Premier League appearances. They are fourth from bottom, one point above Allardyce's former club Sunderland, ahead of Monday's match at Watford .

Moreover, Trump stated that he is now working on a deal with the Japanese billionaire, Masayoshi Son.

Trump earlier claimed the SoftBank investment was a direct result of his election.

A spokesperson for Carrier states that IN agreed to give the company financial incentives IN the amount of $7 million over an unspecified period of time to keep the jobs IN the state.

Sprint Corp. will return 5,000 jobs to the U.S., President-elect Donald Trump said, crediting the wireless company's owner Masayoshi Son for the move. The jobs were part of a public commitment made on December 6 by Masayoshi Son upon emerging from the elevator bank at Trump Tower after a meeting with Trump.

"So we have a combination of Sprint for 5,000 jobs and that's coming from all over the world back into the United States, which is a nice change, and also OneWeb, 3,000 jobs, that's a new company".

"The company anticipates these jobs will support a variety of functions across the organization including its Customer Care and Sales teams". Earlier today, Trump tweeted, "Doing my best to disregard the many inflammatory President O statements and roadblocks". But for those particular jobs, Trump was basically taking a bow for the second time.
