A company that is moving jobs from its Indianapolis plant to Mexico has drawn the social media ire of the President of the United States.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Sunday evening to issue a warning to Rexnord Corporation:

The first 23 workers that will be losing their jobs at the Indianapolis plant were given their pink slips last week, according to the Indy Star. A total of about 350 jobs are moving from Indy to Monterrey, Mexico.

The company will pay their Mexican employees $3 an hour. That’s compared to the $25 an hour their Indianapolis employees make.

President Trump was able to save some Carrier jobs in Indiana from moving to Mexico in a deal he brokered prior to taking office.

Democratic Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly issued a response to Trump’s tweet:

Profiting from the global community at the expense of the home nation…so pay up. Time to call the BS for what it is. Globalism = US 3rd world status at best, no reason we should sit still for this.
