The Most Evil Corporation

There are of course so many competitors for the title of Most Evil Corporation. A few in recent years have, of course, been ExxonMobil, BP, any number of coal companies, Enron, etc., etc.

But we should never forget the New York Yankees of evil corporations, General Electric. In the 60s and 70s, they probably had a Yankee-like dynasty over the title given their dumping of toxic chemicals into the Hudson River and so many other things (though DuPoint, makers of napalm, had to have been the Red Sox of the time). And in an A-Rod-signing like move, GE has sprung back into the picture. Not only do they not pay any taxes at all and claim billions in refunds from the federal government, but now they are doubling down by looking to bust their unions and force workers to pay back millions in benefit concessions.

Again, I know that you all can come up with other competitors for the title, but never forget about G.E.
