General Electric has done it again. It’s not enough that the company is pulling down enormous profit while avoiding their fair tax share. It’s not enough that the company took federal stimulus and TARP dollars and contributed to the 2008 financial crisis. It’s not enough that they have off-shored thousands of jobs. NOW, they lied, to Bloomington workers and to the community. Again. GE said they would hire more workers in the Bloomington plant. They are laying off 160. GE said that Bloomington workers could take retirement as an option. They are being laid off. GE LIES. AGAIN.
