We have an economy that is shedding good paying jobs faster then they can be replaced, we have overloaded ourselves with debt, we have still near 8% unemployment, middle class is failing badly.
At this time right now, when every well paying job is needed, when good paying jobs are so hard for so many Americanís to find. We has someone saying Boeing laying off people is a good thing? In my opinion that is just a plain asinine thing to say. Itís bad enough in good times to know that people are losing jobs to support their family .. but in times like these when those same people will find it hard if not impossible to find a job that pays the same sort of wages Ö itís just plain stupid.

I think there's a thread or two on DP about it. That may have been where I read it.
Thank you, Quazi!
the dely in layoffs that the obama administration requested had to do with the sequestration cuts and that there is a law that defence contractors must give x months notice of layoffs if those workers are working on defence contracts. That is a seperate thing from this story.

Not surprising. There's some unease at the Defense Contractor my wife works for (DynCorp Intl.) and the word going around their office was that Lockheed Martin would be sending pink slip notifications soon to a large number of employees.

It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
