1. Alabama is a wonderfully free "right-to-work" state, which simply means it prevents unions from extracting dues from workers who do not wish to join.
2. General Electric's CEO Jeff Immelt is the poster-boy for crony capitalism, having backed Obama's rush to socialized medicine and green energy to benefit various of its business units.
3. It turns out that GE's Aviation division is breaking ground on a new factory in Alabama. And, unlike Boeing, which tried to build a factory in a right-to-work-state, the National Labor Relations Board hasn't uttered a peep. But I'm sure that's just a coincidence.
Remember the Boeing case?
The NLRB wants Boeing to build all its Dreamliners in Washington State, which is not a right-to-work state.
[The NRLB] wants to stop the Boeing Corporation from using its new aircraft manufacturing plant in South Carolina. Construction began in November 2009 and is almost complete... [It] has charged that Boeing's decision to build a new plant in [right-to-work] South Carolina-to expand production of its Dreamliner 787-was made in retaliation for strikes at its Everett, Washington plant...
...If Boeing is penalized from locating where costs are lowest and production most reliable, then many other companies will be charged.
If I were a more cynical man, I would think that this is yet another example of crony capitalism and big government at its very worst. Companies rewarded and punished by regulators based upon crass partisan hackery. Somewhere, Richard Nixon is smiling.
The fact that Obama-friendly GE is building a plant in Alabama without a whisper of a complaint from the NLRB while Boeing is challenged at every turn must be a coincidence. It simply must be.
Obama-Friendly GE Building Aircraft Factory in Right-to-Work Alabama; Curiously, Unlike Boeing, NLRB Utterly Silent
Impeachment...comes to my mind...
Show this to the OWS morons.
Audemus jura nostra defendere
Let me guess. The “John Boehner” plant in OH is going to be closed?
Just typical gutter thug corruption. Presently, the form of government in our Country.
When will traditional media start doing their job and reporting this crap?
Can you imagine if this were halliburton and this was 2006?
Please Please let us hope reasonable people wake up and pay attention
Liberal thy name is hypocrite.
General Electric, the nations largest corporation, had a very good year in 2010.
The company reported worldwide profits of $14.2 billion, and said $5.1 billion of the total came from its operations in the United States.
Its American tax bill? None. In fact, G.E. claimed a tax benefit of $3.2 billion
Ping for later retrieval of images...:)
If people thought capitalism was uncertain, wait when the weathervane communist.gov goes in place: it will be like the IED, ie. shake and bake the people at the whims of indecisive f@gs in chief.
Disrupting the normal flow in Oakland by the OWS and the NLRB are the same shake system.
Send this to O’Reilly. He WILL give it airtime. More people NEED to know about this!
