  1. Ms. Cleeland: As a tax paying citizen and daughter of a former Boeing Engineer, can I say that I am really sick and tired of unions bullying business. It disgusts me. When they had their last strike at Boeing’s Renton Plant the workers yielded signs “Keep Jobs in America.” Not bad, but such hypocrites….their parking lot was full of foreign vehicles.
    Unions used to protect workers, now they biggest job is to stifle business and cut off the lifeblood of American commerce. No wonder Mexico is building a huge port. American union longshoremen may have insanely high wages now, but soon they will have no wage as their jobs disappear past our southern border. Smart companies will take their business where they can provide jobs AND make a profit for the risks they take. It is a matter of survival for business and unions need to wake up and face reality.
