GE Closes ANOTHER US Light Bulb Plant

GE CLOSES BLOOMINGTON, IL PLANT

A 55 year staple of the Central Illinois business community closed Friday.

Operations at Bloomington’s GE factory off Veteran’s Parkway finally shut down with the end of the work day.

GE announced plans to gradually phase out the facility one year ago.

At the time it employed 96 people.

Workers there say GE plans to retain ownership of the building, and keep on about ten workers from communications and other departments.

They say many others are transferring to plants in Iowa and other neighboring states.

When it opened in 1955, the Bloomington plant employed over 1,000 people.

WHY ARE WE WATCHING IT HAPPEN AND GOING ALONG WITH CFLs BEING THE ‘GREEN’ CHOICE WHEN THEY’RE DANGEROUS, KILLING JOBS AND ALL MADE OVERSEAS? WHO IS RUNNING THE ASYLUM?
