My message to Boeing is to "hold tight". Do not give in. These machinists on strike make an average of $60,000 a year not including health benefits, lifetime pensions, and they work only as fast as the slowest worker. Why work any harder and faster? Depending on seniority and assignments, everybody makes the same.
Most Boeing workers have two incomes. I know, my wife's cousin worked all his adult life for Boeing. Boeing offered all types of recreation for their employees and guests. I played indoor tennis in a free Boeing Recreation Center.
The unions and bad management killed Detroit. Don't let the unions drive more Boeing operations overseas.
