This post is legit. We are expecting another layoff on the 16th. For those that say this already happened, this is an additional one coming. The layoffs are going to keep coming every month into 2021 until people can start flying again unrestricted.

Tidbits for THE NEXT BIG WAVE:
Remember, swim with the current.
And if the water suddenly gets warm, the guy next to you just peed.
And that it isn’t a big deal because it happens in crisis situations sometimes.
Hes wrong its this Friday
What do you mean by ‘next lay-off wave’? That Boeing will be offering a new VLO invitation?
Preach on Bro!!!
It’s going to be hard for working people to pay more taxes for programs when the best blue collar jobs are going to pay $20/hour.
People: We can’t afford more taxes!
Elected Officials: Hold our beers.
I’ve been to SC and have seen the 787 factory. It’s right next to the airport. SC was amazingly beautiful and everyone was cordial. Men still opened doors for women, people used sir and M’am when addressing us, the women looked like women, the men looked like men....
If you work in Everett on the 787 and you are able to move to SC, DO IT.
Sure the pay is less being non union, but you can live like a King for a fraction of what it costs to live in PNW
Besides, Seattle isn’t what it used to be. The current leadership has destroyed downtown.
Y'all need to stop talking about SC employees as if we "stole" your jobs! What you seem to be forgetting is the fact that Boeing chose to leave Washington state for whatever reason, and thanks to them we were provided the opportunity to work for a new company in our community. I (we) have no hatred toward anyone that works at the Everett factory and we'd welcome you with open arms should you have the opportunity to relocate. Please keep an open mind that we are all human beings working to provide for our families. Your aggression should be directed at the company that made the choice to relocate elsewhere, not the people that took advantage of a new opportunity. Have a Good Day!!!
I made the move last year to SC. I literally doubled the size of my house, have the kids in the best schools, and live in an awesome neighborhood. It has been such a solid move for my family. SC does not consist of a bunch of hicks as people who have never been here seem to tell everyone. The weather is awesome, beaches are great, people are nice, cost of living is much lower, and taxes are lower.
Now to the topic of working at BSC, it is non union, however the environment is very similar to that of Everett, (half the employees are WA natives). I find myself busting my a– much more here. When it came to layoffs, it didnt go by seniority, it went by who pulled their weight. I feel like I made the right decision. It is true, tribal knowledge goes deeper in WA, but its just a matter of time before BSC comes around, they are still fairly new, but are improving all the time. Good luck to all.
Boeing employees won’t move because they are scared of non union lol welcome to the real world if you decide to move, their is no 751 to rescue you , Boeing doesn’t tolerate bs they just fire you so good luck.
We have the option to move and keep our job? Really? Tell me where to sign up for this jacka$$
I’m Not laid off yet, but I would definitely take that deal. Also if you mean just move there and apply for a similar position there is no guarantee you’d be hired.
You make perfect sense. Dont know why you got so many dislikes. Goes to show where a lot of peoples heads are at these days. I guess maybe the real problem is people coming to grips with reality. I myself am thinking about that move too. However some people have complicated situations. Like their spouse having a decent job/career, kids, family anxiety of new environment. It is non union over there too. So some big headed manger could find out his wife was cheating on him draw a card and fire you for some lame excuse. Otherwise your point is well taken.
To: @ocv+17fJIYOD, 1st of all cobra for this year is 1100/month for a family of 4, it is based on premium which changes every year, 1100-1500 for last 4 years. I don't know what is for single person.
Regarding BSC lays off will come there also, we would already have sold 1100 plus by then and no airline is in hurry to get a/ps. The rate will go to prob 2 a month in BSC if travel does not rebound. Also demand is for NMA size a/p now, even 787 seems too big so BSC guys happines is short lived
As much i dislike Inslee for taxing the hell out of everyone there are many factors other than this id–t governor and union in decision to move it there. 787 has 4-5 years more left in it before it is replace by new technology.
To: @ocv+17fJIYOD, thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. You’re absolutely correct in every thing you stated.
I have taken the VLO and don’t regret it one bit.
Move to South Carolina if you want to keep your job. What other choice do you have? It's covid-19 time and the external competition is high since 30 million people are looking for a job in USA. Cobra for one person is $800, unemployment checks are delayed, you still have to pay the rent and mortgage, you still need to feed yourself and your family, you still need to pay all the bills.
If the company gives you a choice to move to SC to keep your job, you might want to take that offer. I haven't found a job in two months. The first week you post your resume on linkedin, monster, indeed, etc. you will get a lot of calls from recruiters, and you're going to feel like you're in a great position to find a job. But the following week, and the week after that, and the week after that, when you try and try and only get the first "phone screen" interview and then nobody calls you back, you will feel the frustration, the depression, the laziness, etc. Yah, I know they probably pay a great severance but remember 30-40% of that goes to taxes. Remember, it's always better to find a job when you have a job. This way, if after the phone screening interview, no one calls you back, who cares, cause you still have your current job. I'm just stating what I am going through. So think about it. If they give you an option to move to keep your job and your don't have any other income coming in, then you might want to move and take the job. Health insurance isn't cheap. It's going to eat up 1/4 or more of your unemployment weekly/monthly check total. Good Luck to All!
