President-elect Donald Trump announced Wednesday the addition of roughly 8,000 new jobs for Americans, including 5,000 that telecommunications giant Sprint will bring from “all around the world.” “They’re coming back to the United States, which is a nice change,” he said. Trump, who takes office January 20, said the other 3,000 jobs will be hires from a new company called One Web.
Trump was elected in part on the promise to return to the United States jobs that American companies had moved overseas, in search of cheaper labor costs. Last month, he announced that Carrier would keep roughly 1,000 jobs in Indiana, after months of criticizing the air-conditioning corporation on the campaign trail for plans to move the jobs to Mexico.
