RCPress Interview: General Electric Threatens 1,000 Erie, PA. Jobs in Race to the Bottom

Hello readers and members,

This is our fifth installment of our new RCPress Interview series, and this time we are talking to General Electric Employee and United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America member Mark Haller.  In Erie Pennsylvania, GE – one of the largest corporate tax dodgers – is about to continue its race to the bottom by threatening to ship 1,000 jobs to the Right-to-No-Work State of Texas.  Mark, who has worked at GE for 23 years, mentioned that he and his union aren’t going to take this lying down, and expect more actions coming from the workers.
