The relationship between GE Healthcare and Plexus illustrates well GE’s impact on Wisconsin’s economy. According to an independent study carried out for GE by the research firm TrippUmbach, GE Healthcare is adding annually $3.8 billion to Wisconsin’s economy, including $2 billion in direct spending and in purchases from 1,100 local suppliers like Plexus. The GE business employs 6,500 people in the state. Every 10 GE Healthcare jobs support additional 23 jobs Wisconsin.
http://www.gereports.com/keeping-the-badger-s...
.
GE will spend $1 billion on new plants and technologies to open 1,300 high-tech manufacturing jobs in the U.S. by 2014. Productivity and efficiency gains at new production lines in Kentucky, Indiana, and Alabama will be aided by a cutting-edge data center which opened in Louisville last year.
.
MARCH 20, 2012
GE opens a new refrigerator plant at Appliance Park in Louisville, Kentucky, today. The plant is part of GE Appliances’$1 billion drive to bring manufacturing to the U.S. and create 1,300 new jobs. But the investment also feeds a fertile economic ecosystem that thrives beyond GE factory gates.
Here’s how. A new study commissioned by GE estimated that the company and its 5,000 Kentucky employees help support through their spending and purchasing additional 7,300 jobs in the state. The study calculated that about one out of every 189 jobs in the Commonwealth Kentucky benefits from the economic link between GE and its employees, and their partners and customers.

We Pulled Out All the Stops:” GE to Open New Louisville Plant, Second in the City in Two Months
MARCH 19, 2012
Scott Latham spent 35 years working at GE’s Appliance Park in Louisville, Kentucky.“Thirty-four of those years were spent phasing out products,” the plant manager says.
But this year is different. In February GE started building GeoSpring hybrid water heaters at a new $38 million plant in Louisville, the first new GE factory in the city since 1957. Tomorrow, it will open another plant making high-tech refrigerators.“GE has invested in us and the city of Louisville,” operations manager Scott Douthett says.“The company is committed to building new innovative products in America.” His colleague, team leader Geoffrey Henderson, agrees.“Reviving American manufacturing isn’t going to be decided by the government,” he says.“It’s going to be decided by companies like GE.”
Thank you for the GE info! Businesses that invest in American workers deserve to be rewarded. But it is bassakwards to reward "job creators" BEFORE they create jobs!! That's like training your dog by giving the treat first and just hoping he eventually sits. All incentives must be tied to the American jobs that arecreated. Its simple really! And don't ever forget our dollars hold all the power. My next appliance will be GE.

A man goes into the hospital for a vasectomy. Before the procedure a very attractive nurse comes in and takes his vitals, then tells him to
take all of his clothes off.

When he is fully undressed she instructs him to lie down on the table. The man obeys. The nurse then takes all of her clothes off and climbs on top and has her way with him.

Upon the completion of the act the man catches his breath and asks what that was all about. The nurse informs the patient that studies have shown that before a vasectomy if the man has an ejaculation, he will be more relaxed and that the cord is easier for the surgeon to locate and sever, thereby making the surgery safer, more efficient and quicker.

The nurse then wheels the patient to the operating room. While they are going down the hall the patient looks through a window to the right and sees six men in a room masturbating. Curious, the man asks," What are they doing in there"?

The nurse responds, " They're preparing for vasectomies too, but you have Blue Cross...
they have Obama Care.

<quoted text>Hey, this is a great post!! I agree with most of it with the exception of the 'main problem' being jobs while admitting that is major. But you also touched on it; the main problem is the citizens of this country afflicted with apathy. You bring up a major point with the need to boycott foreign-made products to boost jobs coming back to the U.S. I would love to see NAFTA REPEALED OR AT THE VERY LEAST RE-WRITTEN to protect ALL the trade countries best interests i.e. tit for tat to keep lop-sided situations like the one involving U.S./China from happening. We the people could control gas prices as well, but you can't find enough people who will stand for anything anymore. We could all stay home for a week,[or even half of us] and see a far more humble group in high places with the oil companies. And just tell them the next time they get greedy, we'll stay home 2 weeks. People will say'Oh, I can't afford to do that!' But at today's prices, how can we afford NOT to. Get the trucking companies involved, too. It really is as simple as that, but no one cares enough anymore. Thanks for listening!
You are exactly right! Until the American people stop seeing each other as enemies and start working together for America, we will continue the downward spiral. Patriotism should be measured by how many American made products you have in your shopping cart. Fuel boycotts are also a good way to get some attention. Just to show that all Americans can get behind a common goal sends a very strong message. Politicians and their lobbyists depend on our bickering. I believe everyone from all political parties agree we need more American jobs. Lets all join together and start the buycott to make the effort to buy American or buy it used from an American. Every American made product bought is a victory, spread the word to get family and friends on board. Every movement starts somewhere! There are also many websites that offer only American made products. Remember if you DEMAND it, it will be SUPPLIED!

Totally agree,what one makes is no one else`s business!Back when,it was a kept secret among business people as to income!All this blown up about Romney`s income is just blabber-blabber.Most of us wish we had made it so well!Or,even half as well!

Totally agree. And you're right on target with this. No one keeps track of illegals and the ramifications better than NumbersUSA.com

The president and DHS are clearly in violation of federal law. Their policy is let them go, period!

**********
From the article:

"According to a report on TriValleyCentral.com , a Pinal County Sheriff Officer pulled over an individual who was driving 50 miles over the posted speed limit. After telling the deputy that he was born in Mexico and his parents were in the United States illegally, the deputy called ICE. But ICE said they were not interested in the case because the individual had been in the country for a long time and had committed no felonies.

Sheriff Babeu says there was no verification that the individual had been in the country for a long period of time."

"People who have been here (in America) for a week are going to say that," Sheriff Babeu said. "There's no criteria, and who enforces it? It’s not us, it's ICE. This 17-year-old could have told us anything … I don't know what illegal immigrant would ever say the true time period that they're here. If you've been here two years, why wouldn't you say you've been here five years, knowing there is no check?"

No political party is perfect, and being a union man and working hard for what I have and my dad being a union man invthevearly days at General Electric in Louisville ky, I'm always going to be for the working man and woman. I'm not for the super rich getting catered to with big tax breaks for jobs and not getting the jobs in return. It doesn't work and they need to stop sucking money from the less fortunate.

I couldn't agree with you more. We do make things here in the US, but most of it is mail order. If you type in Google: "Made in the USA there are many stores out there that sell US goods, but you have to order and pay shipping. I often wonder if someone opened a store like this in our towns whether or not it would be supported. Usually things are a little more expensive, but if you were around when we did make things in this country you know they last forever. In our kitchen we have a Mixmaster that was from the middle 80s, works like the day it was made and was from Sunbeam, Chicago, Il. Also an item called "Hot Shot" made by Sunbeam in the US, dated 1979, that heats water instantly, for oatmeal, cream if wheat, hot chocolate, Jell-O, or just about anything. No guessing, it heats perfectly, unlike the microwave where water has blown up in people's faces. I think Anchor Hocking is still made here, but beware of Pyrex unless yours is 20 years or older because the have changed the silica (made in China) and these things explode in the oven. That said - virtually nothing we use on a daily basis is American made anymore, and it doesn't matter how exclusive the item is.

Look for produce with the American flag, grown in the US, it's there if you look. Look on labels such as those in Wal-Mart that say, packaged or distributed by so-and-so for Wal-Mart - make sure it's a US company or it could be a product of a foreign country, not grown here but simply canned or packaged here. This reminds me of those strawberries that were sold at Wal-Mart some years back that put hundreds and hundreds of people in the hospital across the country. They were grown in Mexico.

I realize our own country could produce something that could do the same thing, but I would much rather have mushroom's from the USA than some place in Taiwan.

If you're really concerned about food and product recalls, and there are plenty of them, subscribe to U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recall list. Each day you will be shocked at the recalls across the country for Listeria or Salmonella - it's pretty scary stuff.

As for political boastings of who can bring jobs back to this country..........
