  •  Yeah, but you are missing the whole (0+ / 0-)

    union busting agenda of the upper management.  They are saying all that about competitiveness, but their competitor builds in Europe, where there is high taxation and benefits provided by central governments.  So it's an invalid argument.

    •  If Airbus is lowering prices (0+ / 0-)

      what difference does it make? Lower prices lead to lower profit margins and more pressure to reduce costs. If governments are providing benefits, like healthcare, to the Airbus workers doesn't that put even more cost pressure on Boeing who pays for its employees healthcare?
