..........and your point is?There are thousands of people who are unemployed are willing to work for less and to be non-union since they came from 30 years of airline line maintenance experience who have bad experience with the unions.
At Boeing, we have production employees who have no A&P, real airline experience and have no troubleshooting skills. They come from pizza hut, burger express joints and low wage employers who think that they deserved to make 100,000/year when they are disgruntled, non-skilled and basically does NOT deserved to be in the position they are in.
They are the same workers who shut down production and the ONLY Boeing 787 produced over at Everett with problem. LOT engine filters, wiring on Etheopian, panel falling off on Air India, Norweigian, United Aft EE fire, JAL wing tank fuel problems just to name a few.
In Charleston, maybe we have slight problem with production employees who have not enough experience but that was 21/2 years ago and our flightline mechanics have 20 years airline average experience. We did experienced main gear minor hydraulic leaks due to production does NOT inflate the struts and have sat on the bottom for months. None of our 787 have any problem.
