Even though President-elect Donald Trump pushed Carrier to prevent 1,000 jobs from being exported from their plant in Indianapolis, it’s likely that their parent company, United Technologies, may still move jobs to Mexico.

Now, according to the latest from Bloomberg, Carrier says its going to raise commercial and residential prices by as much as 5 percent next year.

The company says the decision’s not related to the $7 million it got in incentives last week.
