Leonard, you're just a troll. You don't know why you believe the way you do, you're just told to, so you follow along. Why don't you move on?<quoted text>
Simonelli is my hero. I hope the GE Union fools starve to death. This is the happiest day in my life. I hate unions.
Thousands will lose their job in Erie. Thousands of American families will be impacted in the name of greed. This isn't a Union issue... Erie's loco facility has been cranking out quality locomotives for 100 years, union or not, and now this is how they're repaid.
Texas isn't sitting much better. The wages are hardly "competitive", Peterbuilt pays 10 more per hour for less responsibility and a better work environment, Frito Lay is 6 more per hour to bag chips. The workforce currently at GE is still in the honeymoon phase... it's all "We can do it, lets prove those Erie workers wrong!"... 6 months from now they'll be looking for new jobs, I'm already hearing it. The turnover rate will be insane.
I truly am sorry for the losses of jobs in Erie, and I hope you guys land on your feet. I hope the GE takes care of us TX employees, but realistically I think that's unlikely.
