No matter your thoughts on South Carolina -- whether they be reasonable and nuanced or stereotypical and just-for-yuks -- it seems Boeing has made up its mind. According to Dominic Gates in today's Seattle Times, talks between Boeing and their machinist's union are effectively over, leaving the southern state the likely destination for the aerospace giant's Dreamliner jet.
Oh Dreamliner, we hardly knew ye.
Gates' source says the union wants to keep talking, Boeing doesn't. An announcement on the move to Charleston could come within the next couple days. We'll keep you posted.
