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. Entitled? yes, of course they are, slavery has been outlawed a long time ago, look up the history of John Brown on the subject. 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.
