LMFAO! Chris M hit the nail right on the head!
The rest of you socialists and pathetic whiners can all go screw yourselves.
By the way, often times UTC's customers DEMAND a "piece of the action" meaning that when an airline says "Okay, I'll buy those 100 Boeing 747's with Pratt engines ONLY IF you agree to manufacture 30% of those engine parts in my country. If you don't find those terms acceptable, GE and Rolls Royce will."
So shut your pathetic whiny, protectionist, "how dare you out source" ignorant, stupid mouths, okay?
Oh and if you work for UTC and you want to whine and pis and moan, then shut your mouths, get back to work and if you feel so damned abused by the company then go get another job. Odds are you won't find as good of a deal as you have at UTC.
The only reason UTC is the biggest private employer in CT is the liberal state would rather give incentive to state workers than tax incentives to move technical business into the state so the educated have a choice on where to work.
In David's farewell speech he freely admitted it's the talent of the UTC rank and file that makes the corporation great, not one genious as all his great promoters here sing.
Anybody that doesn't care about where there kids are going to work are either:
1) Somebody at the VP or higher level who get paid to seek cheap labor
2) Don't have the brains to make a corporation effecient enough to compete with everybody, even though they have a title,
3) Work for the state
4) Still get lunch money from Mommie.
5) Executive "DINKs"
Look at what happened to East Harford and the surrounding small economy that supported Pratt before the big exodus.
On a meausure of % earnings increase only he's a hero on wall street, but a home buster to those who put him there.
When you're working under the chinese flag hand painting toys with lead paint you'll get it.
Good Luck Coyote worshippers.
