President-elect Donald Trump Friday bashed another company in Indiana — Rexnord Corp. — for its plan to move 300 jobs, also to Mexico.

Trump slammed the company on Twitter: 

 

 

Rexnord, a maker of industrial components based in Milwaukee, said last month that it would move its union jobs and those of as many as 80 managers to Mexico by next June, Fox59-TV in Indianapolis reports.

Chuck Jones, president of the United Steel Workers Union, told the Fox that Rexnord officials said that they were relocating to cut labor costs.

Workers in Indianapolis make $25 per hour, plus benefits, whereas those in Mexico would bring home $2.50 to $3 per hour, plus benefits, he said.

Trump's tweet came a day after he and officials from Carrier announced that the company would keep its air-conditioner manufacturing plant in Indianapolis, along with 1,100 jobs.

Carrier said last year that it was moving to a new plant in Mexico, displacing 1,400 workers.

The president-elect also vowed that "companies are not going to leave the United States anymore without consequences."
