Two years ago none of the 950 employees were working at GE. GE hired them as payback to obama to lower the unemployement numbers before the election and now that obama has won they are no longer needed. All you obama voters should ask yourselves why obama stopped Boeing from moving to a right to work state but is allowing GE to move to a right to work state. You suckers voted for obamas false promises and now you have to live with the results.

You're dumb, no lie. How big of an impact on the national unemployment numbers would 950 people change?
And the difference is Boeing violated law saying that the reason they were moving was to break the union, a big no-no. GE said no such thing. They just lied about it being an overflow plant.
You're dumb, no lie? Lame comeback and you didn't refute any of the FACTS I posted. In this case the Truth really does hurt doesn't it?

Again, what did the union win by their stance?

GE workers forget they work for GE, its not the other way around.

Why do you idiot UE506ers think they built the plant in Tx in the 1st place?
"Right to work state" Dah!
Less in wages, more productive work rules.
No brainer in my opinion.
I'm sorry you suckers voted for Obama. Our scandal Pres.
