More than a thousand Boeing workers hit the picket lines this morning, snarling plans to launch a critical U.S. national security satellite and environmental research spacecraft aboard Delta rockets this year.
Differences over health benefits and retirement plans remained unsolved despite recent talks between Boeing and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.
You know some people, just some, would give their left arm just to get close to those rockets, and get close to working the jobs that those union members are working as... Some people wouldn't believe it if you told them that they could work those jobs and actually get paid to do that work... Some people work in management, but won't get those hunky dory health benefits, or the retirement security... No they have to take care of themselves.
Greedy doesn't even begin to describe these people as far as I'm concerned.
