Still on Strike...

The Machinists strike at Boeing continues into its second week. To get a more in depth look at why the Machinist Union went on strike, please read the article at http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/businesstechnology/2008169753_boei... .

Our domestic, as well as global markets, are in turmoil. And yet, these Boeing machinists somehow think that a strike strengthens their ability to bulldog Boeing into an unfavorable union contract. Its no wonder why Boeing is outsourcing their work to other countries, who have people more than willing to do the 'jobs Americans don't want to do'. It would not surprise me in the least if Boeing ends up sending nearly all of their work offshore, with the exception of those government contracts that require the work to be performed domestically. If and when that does happen, the unions will have no one to blame but themselves.
