Seattle Unionists Lose Another Bunch of Jobs

October 28th, 2009

Worth reading, from Boomburg: Boeing Chooses South Carolina Over Seattle for Second 787 Line This describes Boeing’s decision to locate manufacturing in a right-to-work state rather than in Seattle after the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Union in Seattle refused to agree to a no-strike provision. So the union mentality once again deprives its membership of jobs. Unions have killed too many industries in this country: steel, textiles, auto manufacturing, just to name a few. And don’t forget the destructive effect of intrusive and expensive government in the whole equation. Seattle used to be Boeing’s headquarters and a stalwart part of the Washington State economy. They moved headquarters to Chicago a few years ago for some reason I don’t remember. Perhaps that will eventually land in South Carolina as well.
