Our man hasn’t even stepped into office yet and he’s ALREADY saving the US job market!
Sprint (5,000 jobs) and OneWeb (3,000 jobs) are the two most recent companies in a long chain to announce they’re bringing jobs BACK to the US because of President-Elect Donald Trump. We are almost a month out until The Donald takes over as Leader of the Free World, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for all of us once he does.
CNBC has more on this MASSIVE announcement!
Trump said the deal “was done through” SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son, a Japanese billionaire and technology investor. Earlier this month, the pair announced in New York that SoftBank agreed to invest $50 billion in the U.S. and aimed to create 50,000 jobs.
It is unclear whether all of the positions announced Wednesday are part of the 50,000 jobs pledge detailed previously.
SoftBank owns about 80 percent of Sprint and earlier this month invested $1 billion in OneWeb, a U.S. satellite venture that aims to provide affordable internet. Son said at the time that the OneWeb investment was the “first step” in his commitment to Trump.
“Because of what’s happening and the spirit and the hope, I was just called by the head people at Sprint and they’re going to be bringing 5,000 jobs back to the United States and taking them from other countries,” Trump told reporters Wednesday at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. “They’re bringing them back to the United States and Masa and some other people were very much involved in that so I want to thank them. And OneWeb, a new company, is going to be hiring 3,000 people and that’s very exciting.”
