    GE Moving from Wisconsin . Keep your eye on Waukesha , Wisconsin

    ......Their biggest employer just moved out.

    General Electric is planning to move its 115-year-old X-ray division

    from Waukesha , Wis .., to Beijing . In addition to moving the

    headquarters, the company will invest $2 billion in China and train

    more than 65 engineers and create six research centers.

    This is the same GE that made $5.1 billion in the United States last

    year, but paid no taxes - the same company that employs more people

    overseas than it does in the United States .

    So let me get this straight. President Obama appointed GE Chairman

    Jeff Immelt to head his commission on job creation (job czar). Immelt

    is supposed to help create jobs. I guess the President forgot to tell

    him in which country he was supposed to be creating those jobs.

    Thanks Jeff, you're a "real" American....give Barrack our Best!

    Do you ever get the feeling like you are shouting into a wind tunnel, and nobody's listening or hearing what you are saying? I'm sick of the one sided liberal puke media in the US, as they don't bother to bring stuff like this up and make a big deal out of it. They would rather go after Mitt Romney for having been head of a company 13 years ago that sent some work offshore...

    All these companies are whores, and they will do what ever they want to do when it comes to profitability. I do work for a very large company (Goodrich) and they have pulled all their work out of our facility and sent it to China. For 50 years we have been supporting Goodrich with on time and reasonably priced products. But because they are on an initiative to drive costs down, they pulled $14M (per year) worth of work out and sent it to a communist country. And guess when they started sending this work out to China? When OBUMMER was elected. Do you think anyone in the media would ever breathe a word of this? This kind of crap makes me want to barf in their back seat...

    You mean we lost 11,700 jobs last month in the state, and now we are losing more. Great! Walker must not have offered them enough to stay.

    Immelt feels the re-election is lost, so he's getting out of town (U.S) while the getting is good.

    Cheap labor, China's incentives, and pay back for the 2008 election donations through 3rd party dispersements.

    Employment czar.....right.

    So much for payback to the union members who went to the capital and did damage and threaten murder to protect their status!

    GE has no loyalty's except to Obo. And he is not working out either.

    Galt,

    Because sane people look insane, to the insane! LOL

    Buzzy,

    No amount of explaining would help you understand. Trust me, your mind would still be confused.

    "The Volt" Hows that working out? If it were any other model, it would be discontinued due to lack of sales and extreme development costs. In other words, a Loser.

    But not at Obama Motors.

    Walker had nothing to do with it.

    Immelt is chief of GE, which has more than HALF of its jobs outside the US.

    He is also The Jobs Czar from Hell, an Obama appointee.

    GE paid NO corporate taxes last year, and Immelt is looking for major concessions from union workers. His salary was doubled.

    So I'll wait for Midalake to tell me what Walker was supposed to do.I would, of course suggest reading the above link first.

    All,

    This is old news, see link, happened in 2011.. Only the execs moved, the 150 Wisconsin employees are still here. I live in Wisconsin, we all hate the idea that GE pays dilly nothing in taxes here, but they employ a ton of people here.

    Whatever you think of Walker, this isn't something he should be blamed for or given any credit for. I, know GE doesnt make global business decisions based on a state governors demands, it's the other way around.
