Khellendros: Phil Moskowitz: Khellendros: Much of their production/manufacturing staff is unionized, but I don't think a significant percentage of their engineers are unionized.I'm sure that was supposed to mean something.Read the first half of the thread - there are a lot of people who don't understand the difference between manufacturing and engineering, and which part is unionized at Boeing. They play radically different parts in the process of getting a new plane up and running, as well as who's to blame if something catches on fire or cracks.
Because People in power are Stupid: Kraftwerk Orange: Ok... So change that to the planes assembled in Washington by Union Labor are the ones having problems, while the planes assembled using non-Union labor in South Carolina are fine (for now, that could certainly change).You seem to be dim... on the issuehttp://articles.latimes.com/2011/feb/15/business/la-fi-hiltzik-20110 21 5"The airliner is billions of dollars over budget and about three years late. Much of the blame belongs to the company's farming out work to suppliers around the nation and in foreign countries."RTFA Prior to this Boeing was "insourcing" after a machinist strike they outsourced to get around those pesky little Union workers.The issue really isn't that hard to grasp -so what's your problem. Are you reality challenged?
Because People in power are Stupid: This is what happens when you try to break the unions. You undermine your knowledge base and behold -a (semi) flying turd.
