    FAA grounds Boeing 787s to address battery fires - Live5News.com | Charleston, SC | News, Weather, Sports

    The FAA just grounded all Boeing 787's due to all the problems that plane has been having lately!! Grounded them ALL!!!

    This is a year or two after Boeing moved it's Dreamliner plant to South Carolina to take advantage of non-union labor (aka, cheap wages, lower benefits). Now...are they getting shitty labor in SC? Or, did that act crush morale in Seattle, and cause them to do shitty work???

    Either way....bad day for Boeing!

    This is very interesting, and Im interested in hearing how this plays out. Was it cheap, non-union labor in SC that caused this PR nightmare? Or...was it union retaliation, or, just plain low morale and sloppy work in Seattle that caused it?

    With all the gun coverage, this story hasn't got much time, but here in SC it has due to the plant being here.

    This is interesting, mostly because of the timing just 2 years after moving a huge plant to a non-union state.

    Probably it was pushing production faster. They are overwhelmed with orders for this lemon lol.
