The Pigs Get Fat, and the Hogs Get Slaughtered. -- Boeing Union Walks Out on Strike
According to The Wall Street Journal:
The company's final contract proposal included a pay raise of 11% over the life of the contract, as well as a boosting of pensions by 14% to $80 a month for each year of service. Under the proposed contract, the average union member would earn roughly $65,000 a year before overtime that averages $10,000 a year or more.
The union said it wanted pay raises of at least 13% and a larger pension amount. It also wants Boeing to abandon plans to have workers take on a greater share of health-care costs.
