Is the 15% cut in Management ranks? If not, it should be, including HR types, but 15% is way to low, make it 40%, that's a good start. Boeing is top heavy with to many Managers with not a lot to do. As for Boeing HR, why is there five levels of... — read more

Have there been any more layoffs at Boeing today? Do we know if any more sites will be hit today or sometime next week? Should I be worried if our plant is not manufacturing anything for the 737? Also, do we know how many total people were laid off... — read more
Boeing started laying off staff today due to the 737 Max debacle. A friend of mine was laid off in Atlanta and said that multiple others were also dismissed.

Have you heard anything about potential Boeing Layoffs in 2019?
I read somewhere Boeing's suppliers were delaying deliveries and that the line would slow down. Are there layoffs associated with that? I'd be stupid because you won't get those people back when it picks back up again. Asking for a friend. — read more
