I am a Boeing employee in the Puget Sound area.I am a member of the
engineers union (not by choice).The machinists union is out of control.
The Boeing plants in this area are filled to capacity. Moving out of state was
the only real option. It just makes sense to move to a right to work state.The NLRB might be able to force Boeing not shut down operations in South
Carolina (I call it abuse of power).It would be divine justice for
Boeing to relocate this plant off shore.What else should Boeing do? Obama
cannot stop Boeing from moving those jobs out of the USA. If they insist on
being stupid, a certain part of my hopes Boeing moves the jobs out of the
country.Stupid should hurt.
Guess Mr. Romney has concluded he is not going to get the union vote.
Why, oh, why am I not surprised that this current administration wants to tell
yet another private company what it can and cannot do.We're not
talking about some company artifically inflating prices. We're simply talking
about where it can and cannot build it's factories.America's most
dangerous enemies: politicians, lawyers, the mainstream media, the half of
America that voted for Obama.
Maybe before Mitt comes to the rescue of more corporate interests, perhaps he
should secure the nomination. He isn't there yet.
I think what Boeing is doing is pure business. If taxes are higher in
Washington, build somewhere with lower taxes. If unions force high wages in
Washington, build somewhere else. If gas is $3.00 a gallon at one station and
$3.50 at another, where are you going to buy? It is common sense.
Re: Furry1993 | 1:02 p.m. Sept. 12, 2011 "Romney is, once again,

thought it was appropriate to play politics when running for political office.
If that isn't the case someone should let Obama in on the secret. The dirty little secret the unions don't want you to know is that the aircraft
Boeing assembles in South Carolina will come complete with all the standard
equipment like wings and engines just like their plant in Seattle. Who knows,
they may even throw in the tail for free.
What exactly is Boeing doing that is ILLEGAL?Boeing has negotiated
fairly with the unions in the Pugent Sound for decades. Boeing didnt even
decide to lay everybody off because there was another union strike. Nope.
Boeing made the reasonable decision to not invest in improvements of their
operations in the Pugent Sound area because they realized they are better off
Romney is, once again, playing politics and trying to gain political capital.
Why am I not surprised.
Sounds like Romney has this right! Jobs have been held up because of the UNION
fight against Boeing building it's new plant in South Carolina, which happens to
be a "Right To Work" State, just like Utah is. Unions are against
that, because it takes their power away. Unions have gotten away from the
"People" and are in the hands of Power Hungry Mongers who want money
and profits for themselves, not the "Union Workers", they use the
guise of a "Union" to put up a front to have big administration to pay
blood sucking leaches who occupy desks and take "Union Dues" for their
wages and to invest in bribing and lobbying polical "Representatives"
who have gotten rich off of Union Money to get their "Power" and be
crooked themselves and not serve for the good of the country, but the good of
themselves and their selfishness and greed! That is what it's all about, and why
we see the destruction of morality, the economy, and the rate of cheaters,
swindlers and greedy politicians and executives to begin with! Morality needs to
be Re-Instituted into the American Fabric and America will Grow into it's
Greatness once Again!!!
