The reader must keep an eye on GE’s hypocrisy in talking about job creation in the U.S. while shipping thousands upon thousands of jobs to China.
A leader in manufacturing and assembly of windmills used on windmill farms has also received a set back with the recent findings that Energy generated from Wind farms make climate change WORSE: Turbines actually heat up local areas.
GE has also cornered the market and manufacture The CFL: The Light Bulb That Screws YOU! The bulb compact fluorescent lamps released several cancer-causing chemicals such as phenol, naphthalene and styrene in a form of steam as they were switched on. Consequently, the researchers have advised against the use of these lamps in close proximity of the human head and body, for example as a night lamp for reading. Yes, Enviro-light bulbs can cause cancer
Ah yes in the name of lowering CO2 emissions that also require a HAZMAT Team to remove a broken bulb as the mercury splashes on the floor. Big shocker, in another attempt to foil imaginary CO2 induced “green house gases.” the usual unintended consequences of another failed program is not only harmful but extremely. All the while GE unethical practices send them laughing all the way to the bank as the pay zero in federal income taxes. The moral of the story, I pays to be a major donor to Team Obama.
Would w anything else from GE’s CEO Jeffrey Immelt, the parent of NBC and a member of Obama’s “No new job creation council.” It takes very little imagination that both store their heads in the same place.
GE’s new slogan: We bring new things and thousands of jobs to China.
Let’s not forget that Immelt, the head of Barack Obama’s highly touted “Jobs Council”, is moving even more GE infrastructure to China. GE makes more medical-imaging machines than anyone else in the world, and now GE has announced that it “is moving the headquarters of its 115-year-old X-ray business to Beijing.“
Apparently, this is all part of a “plan to invest about $2 billion across China” over the next few years. But moving core pieces of its business overseas is nothing new for GE. Under Immelt, GE has shipped tens of thousands of good jobs out of the United States.
Perhaps GE should change its slogan to a different one, “Imagination At Work (In China)”. If the very people who have been entrusted with solving the unemployment crisis are shipping jobs out of the country, what hope is there that things are going to turn around any time soon?
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
