12. Boeing has, once again shot itself in the foot...

The average CPJ (Cost Per Job), is three times higher in South Carolina than it is in Everett, not only that but the poor production rate in Charleston is doing nothing to lessen the impact of the backlog on Boeing's bottom line. Safety for air travelers also has to be taken into account. The inexperienced workforce in Charleston will be forced to "cut corners" in order to try to inflate their production metrics.

While spending hundreds of millions of dollars to expand and upgrade the Everett plant, Boeing loves to make threats about closing the Union shop every time their labor contract comes up. This is obviously nothing but hot air, but I like to think that if Boeing were to shutter the Everett plant, Air Bus would be first in line to buy the building and set up shop in Everett. That alone would have to send Boeing into a tail spin.
