GE Lies — Super Bowl Ad Claims They’re “Revitalizing Manufacturing”

GE lied big time in an ad it ran tonight during the Super Bowl —  on NBC, which is owned by GE — and gosh golly, NBC, an alleged “news” organization, let it go without noting the inaccuracies:

You gotta love the “liberal media.”

    GE has closed 29 US factories since 2009. Over half of its workforce is overseas. It operates manufacturing plans in China and India. GE’s Super Bowl propaganda was exactly that, propaganda to make it look like Immelt and crew give a crap about jobs in the US. GE is concerned about one thing and one thing only and thats making stockholders happy and if that involves hiring third world labor in third world factories, then that’s what they are going to do. How many AMERICANS has GE laid off since 2000? How many foreign employees have they gained. If you work there, take a look. We had a layoff at one plant and they got rid of 12 employees domestically and hired 16 employees in India in the same department so it went from 48 to 52 people.

    Look at how they changed their benefits too. We used to have good insurance, now its very expensive. Look how many contractors work in our engineering and IT groups. GE is one of the big reasons we have no manufacturing here as they will continue to ship it overseas as long as it makes the all important number.

    Remember the slogan back in the day “GE is Me”? Now its GE is Overseas.
