Union faulted for Boeing move

The Spokesman-Review
 

The selfish machinists union at Boeing Seattle got just what they deserve: no future jobs. The South Carolina Boeing people pledged not to strike and they got the big assembly job on the new passenger jet.

These Boeing union guys have cost the state of Washington economy so much damage in the past years it is immeasurable and again just took a bite out of the state’s economic future.

Now I suppose they will walk up to the unemployment line with their hand out. I don’t know how the rules run but I’d say anyone who strikes does not deserve one penny of taxpayers’ help and they should suffer what they voted for. Maybe there will be a lot of cheap homes and repo’ed cars on the market.
