Sounds like a good decision.Move production to South Carolina where skilled workers do an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay.
I've just read about how our economy is in the midst of a "strong recovery".
Makes sense to lay off the folks finishing out the 787 if you can’t finish them out until the fixes are approved.
Oh, wait, here it is from the Seattle Slimes:
Forced celebration of sodomy won, too: 53.7% to 46.3%.
Moral decline will be followed by economic decline. You voted for it, Washington. Enjoy.
Time for Boing to open an “open shop” plant in the south.
Good. Obama’s redistribution continues.
I think if you are a machinist in Everett you just found out.
If you work for Boeing and you’re a conservative machinist, you have my empathy.

This is one of the reasons why the commie union thugs are pushing so hard for amnesty. They are going to need those illegal aliens as new members to replace all of the Americana that have been laid off.

Update per King 5: A Boeing spokesperson confirmed on Friday that the company will lay off 800 workers, as well as reduce its overall workforce by 2,000 or more in 2013.
Update: According to a company spokesperson, the layoffs will be primarily of workers in the 787 and 747 post-assembly facilities, all machinists, in Everett.
The additional 2,000 to 2,300 positions will be elimated through attrition and transfers.
Boeing and the Machinists Union say the layoffs aren’t unexpected. The union added that while it’s never good to lose jobs, there is no reason to panic.
No employees have been notified of layoffs yet.
