Light bulb factory closes; End of era for U.S. means more jobs overseas
WINCHESTER, VA. – The last major GE factory making ordinary incandescent light bulbs in the United States is closing this month, marking a small, sad exit for a product and company that can trace their roots to Thomas Alva Edison’s innovations in the 1870s.
BOYCOTT THE USE OF CFL BULBS THAT GE IS FORCING ON US.
They are CLOSING US FACTORIES AFTER GETTING STIMULUS money!
This transition to CFL bulbs is a deal made with GE from the George Bush era and incandescants are set to be eliminated and replaced by CFLS in the next year. If we don’t stand up to take a look at what’s in front of us, we will lose more jobs and be stuck with fluorescent light bulbs at home. CFLs are not green, GE is using them as a way to make money and has closed ALL it’s US factories as of this month. Don’t just believe something is GREEN just cause the government and big business says so.
