    Re: NLRB Issues Complaint Over Boeing’s Move to S.C.

    While it would be good for this area jobs-wise, I disagree with the premise of the suit.
    Boeing has plenty of money to pay good wages here in the Puget Sound, they just want to take advantage of SC's lower living standards and wage scale.
    I don't think I want to fly in a plane made by a non-union someone making ten bucks an hour.

    I am certain that's exactly what Boeing has in mind moving to SC. That and actually getting planes produced in a timely manner.

    Yea, because having those "made in Japan" wings (or any number of other parts made by $10 hr workers) stuck on by highly paid union workers makes the planes much more safe. {sarcasm intended}
    From the ashes.

    exactly. this is why the head of the NLRB had to be appointed in recess - because he's a union radical. we have put the fox in charge of guarding the henhouse.

    but at least we can finally put to rest the canard that Unions are "for the middle class". Boeing had already hired 100,000 workers - that's 100,000 families that the unions want to put out on the street in a fit of pique. "for the middle class" my butt - unions are "for" union leadership.

    Still a bad move on the union's part. I fully support unions, but at the same time, if a company wants to move, that is their prerogative. What the hell is this? The Soviet Union reborn?

    I would pay extra to fly in a non-union plane personally, anything to end the evil that is the Union. And I mean that.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Dont' worry, the liberals are working on that.

    What exactly does being in a union have to do with anybody's ability to work on an aircraft?

    As long as President Obama is in office the NLRB should be called the National Union Dominance Board. Their slogan can be, "We reward our friends."

    I was fired years ago for refusing to join a union. I moved to a non-union shop and more than doubled my income. Of course, I wanted to work.

    Well according to the other poster, you are the equivalent of an unskilled worker since you don't belong to a union.
