the layoffs at boeing have been in the works for a while..this is not a new story..union versus non union shops,competiton and costs are all factors,not just airbus aircraft..aircraft orders are done years in advance, by contracts with various airlines or companies,and those are always subject to cancellation...

Boeing and other companies are cutting jobs to improve their bottom line for investor payouts and growth, $$ for the stock market, but at the cost of working class jobs, so which is more important, too keep the work force and economical success or increase the stock which may 5 cents a share?

Is boeing planning on selling less aircraft in the future, so that less workers are needed? Has boeing figured out how to produce more with less labor?
