Boeing shouldnt be held hostage by worker demands no longer feasible in our economy.....like any business, they owe it to their shareholders to find the most economic choices long-term.
it hasn't failed because it is still open and boeing is working through normal startup issues with a new plant. once they get everyone trained up and in place then the plant will start to produce.Their set up in South Carolina failed
Is this true?
Secret Wounds Of Globalism: Boeing Sells Its Technology -- Cheap -- To Japan - Forbes
Pity really, a chance for Boeing to rid itself of the corrupt Unions, oh well.
⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
The Japanese in particular have played Boeing like a violin. On the one they have been prepared to pay top-dollar for Boeing planes — but have insisted in return that Boeing transfer more and more of its erstwhile most carefully guarded manufacturing secrets. In the short term agreeing to Japan’s demands may have seemed like a great idea because it boosted immediate profits and by extension, of course, the value of top executives’ stock options. But the long run effects have included not only the loss of tens of thousands of American jobs but the weakening of the U.S. trade balance. And, of course, in the end Boeing’s entire future is called into question.
Beoing said we aren't offering anymore this is the deal accept it or we are going to move the plane to another location. they didnt' have to accept it, but the younger workers decided having a good paying job and feeding their families was more important than 100 a week strike pay and losing a long term contract.
even though the vote was close 600 votes between them self interest comes out in the end.
It doesn't matter if the company is doing A ok. if they don't want to pay something they don't have to. the workers can accept or not accept, but they will suffer the consquences of what they decide. boeing had 22 states already pitching to build the planes if the contract fell through.
