Carrier Air Conditioning announced this week that the company will be moving manufacturing operations from an Indianapolis plant to Monterrey, Mexico, a move that will cost 1,400 people their jobs over the course of the next three years. On Wednesday, employees were told about this decision, as seen in a video that surfaced on Facebook shortly after.

Suffice to say, the news was not well received. The decision likely will not help with mounting tensions many Americans are feeling towards Mexico (thanks in part to Donald Trump), as one person immediately shouts out, “That’s why you brought all those [expletives] here!” The executive announcing the news likewise doesn’t help by continuously and insultingly referring to the layoffs as “a transition,” telling the disconcerted employees, “I want to be clear, this is strictly a business decision.”
