22. This is all about power & control

This is the logical extrapolation of what you get when class politics dominates and causes management to make irrational decisions. Oh, it's about money too, to be sure, that's an eventual goal, but this is a major trial balloon of the ultimate MBA "by the numbers" way of having Boeing become ( eventually ) a "virtual" airplane company. If they pulled this off successfully, there's nothing further they can't do. for years, decades really, globalist/free-trade shills have always sought to assuage concerns of US de-industrialization by always touting US leadership in aircraft manufacturing and it's resultant exports. It was the only bright spot.

Where am I going with this? Let's not be fooled: The SC plant was never meant to just assist in 787 production but to eventually replace the Everett one. Of course their move backfired since they were blinded by their own class conscious corporate hubris. If this DID sauced: How long do you think it would be before they offshore to the 3rd world even the scab Charleston plant?

I wouldn't be surprisd if Airbus has more US built content than a Boeing plane. ( Boeing has been subbing out A LOT of subassembly overseas for years and years )
