THE TRUMP EFFECT – IBM TO CREATE 25,000 U.S. JOBS

Winning! Winning! Winning!

This is what America is all about. What the liberal media does not understand is by putting the incentives in the right direction again, Donald Trump is unleashing the power of the American Economy that Obama has dragged in the mud through too much taxation and regulations.

The CEO of IBM announced on the eve of a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump that the company plans to hire 25,000 employees.

In a USA Today op-ed, CEO Ginni Rometty announced that the new jobs will come over the span of four years, including 6,000 in 2017.

“We are hiring because the nature of work is evolving – and that is also why so many of these jobs remain hard to fill,” wrote Rometty. “As industries from manufacturing to agriculture are reshaped by data science and cloud computing, jobs are being created that demand new skills – which in turn requires new approaches to education, training and recruiting.”

Rometty is one of a handful of tech executives who will be meeting with the president-elect at Trump Tower on Wednesday.

She wrote that the company is also planning to spend $1 billion on training and developing IBM employees in the U.S.

Rometty is a member of Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum, a group of US business leaders focused on boosting economic growth and jobs.
