Simonelli said he believes today’s announcement is in the best interest of the company and its employees. But he also acknowledged the news will be painful for many.
“These are difficult times and this is a difficult announcement,” he said.

said the man who makes 100 million a year, must be real rough and tough on him? what comes around goes around!

E doesn't want to pay fair wages to workers only poverty wages while the CEO gets millions:

Article in Huffington Post
General Electric says its Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Immelt received compensation for 2012 that was 80 percent more than his pay in 2011.

The company, which makes products ranging from light bulbs to jet engines, gave Immelt a pay package valued at nearly $20.6 million, according to an Associated Press analysis of regulatory documents filed Monday. That compares with $11.4 million in 2011.

GREED IS ALIVE AND WELL IN THE U.S. OF A

Before Int'l Paper left Erie it made the union workers take a big pay cut and pay for their health care. When employees picketed and asked for support from GE workers they got turned down. It doesn't feel too good - does it.

This makes it even more imperative that Cabela's opens its store in the Erie area. This would give great opportunity for displaced workers to find good retail employment. Combine that with a couple of other part time service jobs to match previous income and you're looking at a work day of just 16 - 18 hours. Who be says a good life in Erie can't happen ?
