Greed is Killing a Titan

Posted on Tuesday, March 5th, 2024

Dave!Growing up in Washington State, you can't help but be very aware of Boeing. It was founded in Seattle just over 100 years ago, and it's tough to grow up here and not know somebody who was touched by the company in some way.

Well, at least until 2001, when Boeing moved its HQ to Chicago (and then subsequently moved to Arlington last year). Since that time, this once-great titan of industry has had its share of problems.

And it turns out that they were bigger problems than I could have guessed, for all the reasons that I should have expected...

Sad. Horrifying. And oh so predictable.

Who I feel bad for are the many Boeing workers whose jobs are in jeopardy because of decisions that were entirely outside of their control... and airlines like Alaska Air who trusted Boeing to put out a quality product that's safe and reliable.

Not to mention all the passengers and crew whose lives are put into danger because Boeing management cares more about making a buck than human lives.

    I completely agree that it’s said to see what’s happening to Boeing. Unfortunately the video you shared is not available in the U.S.? I tried to get it to play elsewhere and I can see it’s John Oliver but apparently it’s now hidden on their official channel.

    This frap is terrifying, isn’t it?

    So autocorrect doesn’t catch “frap”?

    I just watched this last night. John Oliver did an amazing, albeit scary, job at reporting the facts behind Boeing becoming a shit company and putting people’s live in danger over corporate profits.
