    THIS FUND DESTROYED 90% of the value

    Hello Thecel I read about Boeing moving out of Seattle. This is Malinda's better half. While in the USAF I used to go there with KC135 air refueling tankers. I spent days there and at Moses Lake to have modifications done to the aircraft. It is hard to believe Boeing moved to Chi, but understandable with the unions never being content. The last year I was in the military, I took classes at Mid Fla Tech and obtained my FAA license to work on civilian aircraft as well. Upon my retirement from USAF, I began applying for jobs in the Southeast US only to find out all positions at major airports for mechanic were reserved for union members with the most seniority. With the training I acquired at various tech schools, I then took up working and repairing industrial and construction equipment and enjoyed that trade for the next 26 years until my retirement for good. The welding, electrical, hydraulic, sheet metal and electrical over hydraulic was not lost by any means. I just applied it to a different trade. I never had to worry about strikes, layoff, and union dues, so I probably was better off than fooling with unions. It is sad to think how the present administration is so tied in with unions. Obama took every mobster he could find and put them on the public payroll. Well, so much for crying in my beer. Good luck
