Latest GE Commercial Promotes Financial Services… And Chinese Light Bulbs (Video)

The latest General Electric commercial playing on television promotes their financial services segment. The ad shows how a small business owner used GE for his loans and light bulbs.

It’s a nice ad…
Except for the fact that the light bulbs they show off were made in China.
Business Insider reported:

Speaking of the de-industrialization of America, Tim Carney was on hand for the production of GE’s last-ever incandescent lightbulb in the United States. The shutdown of a plant in Winchester, VA will result in the layoffs of 200 workers.

It’s yet another example of a company shifting manufacturing jobs overseas, but there’s a twist, because GE is supporting the environmental regulations that are driving incandescent lightbulbs to the deadpool.
