Corporate filth

My friend Bryant is a historian. More specifically, he studies the history of the labor movement in the United States. I doubt he has seen this ad from GE but if he does, I know he'll be appalled. It's like the marketing geniuses at GE saw the coal mining scene in Zoolander and, lacking any knowledge of the long, sordid history of coal mining in this country, made their ad into a parody of that scene. Or maybe they know all about the coal industry and just how well it treats the people who work for them, but just don't care. I don't know. Either way, check out Arvin Hill going apeshit on GE.
