WOW ---a WHOLE 13.03 a hour. So when your $2000 frig breaks down after 6 months you will know that Immelt is making his 35 million a year to make sure they meet their quota's.

You are right! Big corporate CEO's and corporations have bought out Washington. They spend huge amounts of money lobbying for there wants and needs. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer! Some mind you are legit and the up and up. But most are greedy and only in it for themselves and what they can rape from the American people. Common folk dont have a fighting chance any more. Wouldnt it be nice to know the true cost of those refrigerator's. How much goes to cheap labor. What the true profit margin is for GE?

Here's an idea. Just don't buy GE products and stop buying crap these people produce and charge loads of money for. Same goes for all the rest of this overpriced slave labor crap brought in from China.

Yet another large old-times business unit that GE tried to get rid of, and is now stuck with!

Gareth Bale might be behind Cristiano Ronaldo in the queue to take Real Madrid free-kicks, but he is still pretty good when it comes to striking the ball.The Welsh wizard has perfected the latest set-piece technique known as the 'knuckleball', with which he has scored goals for Tottenham and Los Blancos.

On my second (new) clothing washer in less then a year... The first one craped out after 6 months, after a month of trying to fix it GE replaced it... NOW the replacement has died after 7 months. Still under warranty.. after two weeks of trying to fix it and waiting another week for the Tec guy to come back each time.. Order more parts, more parts and more parts. almost $3000 in parts and $400 in labor costs they are still trying to fix it... Cost of a new washer $1300. But GE thinks spending twice the cost of a new one to fix it, is a good way to spend money... Service people all read from the same book, and they lie to you just to make you feel good. GE washers are crap and the repair service is worse.
My family, friends, in-laws, and every person I know will never buy anything made by GE>>>
