Just had a discussion with a retired Boeing employee [View all]

He worked there for 32 years. When Boeing sold to Spirit he said what astounded him and many others such as supervisors and such was the amount of nepotism going on. . So many relatives being put in positions of decision making (supervisors and such) I did not know that. It just gets me that when companies go in the red and start having financial difficulties, they blame taxes and regulation instead of themselves and the incompetent people they just put in charge. So when they cut taxes and expect things to suddenly improve, we should not be surprised when that does not work.
