Workers fired up for big reasons

Regarding the Bruce Ramsey column in the Seattle Times, “The emotional Machinist vote on Boeing’s union contract proposal”: The column was certainly biased toward Boeing Management. The line about the machinists not being indispensable — try building a plane without them.

And about the ploy to dump the pension for a 401K plan, which does Ramsey have? Bet he’s got a pension plan too, cause you know what the markets are like, a casino.

And the South Carolina plant, the Herald printed an article last Sunday comparing the two sites, of the 98 787’s built, Everett 86, Charleston, 12.
