CHARLESTON, S.C. — Boeing is expanding in South Carolina and will invest another $1 billion, creating 2,000 new jobs during the next eight years, the aerospace giant announced Tuesday.

Company spokeswoman Candy Eslinger said the company, which operates a 787 assembly plant in North Charleston, will expand its operations. The first of the new 787s made in South Carolina rolled off the assembly line about a year ago.

Goodie - this is going to drive the RAT party, the unions, Obozo, and the NLRB absolutely out of their mind.

The piece didn’t mention Everett but doubt this will effect them over the long hall, isn’t Boeing going to build a new 777 line there?

Senator Patsy Murphy to the KING 5 TV podium. Paging Senator Murphy.....stat!

(FYI : King 5 TV is the very lie-beral Seattle tv station and the mouth piece for anything that runs through Patty's itty bitty mind).

I knew it was not good news for Seattle, when Boeing announced it was moving its flight simulators from the Puget Sound region to Florida.

Boeing is making it clear that it has no love for Seattle and the Soviet of Washington.

Boeing, BMW, and Michelin all have serious major league manufacturing facilities in South Carolina.

How’s all that socialism working out for you, Seattle, California, NY, etc.?

Here they sat with the 787s grounded over the battery problem and the engineers union picked this time to vote to strike. The over-paid pu$$ies here in the northwest don’t get it, they really don’t.

Versus Komo 4 or Kiro 7? Is there any station in the PNW that is not very liberal? Anyway, I was thinking that the unions were not going to be happy with this move by Boeing. I wonder if ANY of those union people regret, even slightly, going on strike for months against Boeing during the big recession of 2008? Never mind, I don't wonder, I know they don't. Probably don't even connect the strike with Boeing opening up a new plant in a right to work state.

This action is a push back to Obama’s illegal NLRB rulings. Since the courts ruled that Obama’s nominations were done illegally, all the rulings made since those nominations are nullified.

Christine Gregoire was very involved in the Boeing union fight and was thought to be in-line for a seat on the NLRB, but that never happened. Then Gregoire backed the union push for the coal terminals and was thought to be in-line to head the EPA. Then they said, that she might get the Secretary of the Interior job, that didn’t happen either. Then they said that Obama was going to make her the ambassador to Canada and she didn’t get that either.

It looks like carrying Obama’s water doesn’t pay off in any way. Gregoire lost a lot of friends when she supported the coal terminals for Obama and the unions.

Thanks, Gregoire has been a disaster.

I just finished reading another article on this at the Seattle Times that goes into it in more depth. Was written by Dominic Gates, Times aerospace reporter and talks of the 777 line in Everett.

Washington worries as Boeing pours $1B into S.C.

The NLRB over stepped their authority when they tried to force Boeing to remain in Everett and limit expansion to other states and the union is Everett over stepped with their strike at the beginning of the recession, when airlines were struggling. I remember reading about the test flight that took place during that strike, the plane had to turn back to Boeing field due to metal shavings left in the gas tank, blocking the fuel lines. That sort of thing just doesn’t happen by accident on a test plane, produced by top level machinists. The unions can only blame themselves.

Grew up in Charleston, one of the best cities in the US. Great people, delightful history, terrific resturants, good place to live. Bit on the expensive side for housing, though, especially where I would like to live.
