What makes you think they are the highest paid union. Do some research, I don't see them on anyones list as being the highest paid
The highest payed union job is the NBA followed closely by Baseball then NFL.
What union is the highest paid?
all told the steel workers. but they are a small union(not many skyscrapers around) after that in full time employment plumbers/electricians. in a manual type work
Most likely changed for one or all of the items below (IMO)
Support increased production rate at 10/month.
about the weight, have you considered how many times/miles a gallon of gas has to travel to make it to the gas pump before it can even been used(pump it from the ground, transport it, refine it, deliver it to pump, then in the vehicle to burn it)
I'm sure this was a really big sacrifice for the CEO.
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Boeing Co (BA) said on Thursday it will end pension plans for 68,000 non-union employees, including its chief executive.
It's not currently the number of places to buy TESLA's in the state, it's there aren't enough buyers yet for a need to expand.
Wayne/Fred etc, just keep up creating new alias's so you can talk to yourself.
OT on A380 like you did
IIRC Airbus originally predicted the program would break even at 250 frames. They raised that number to 275 before the CATIA wiring problem came to light. After that they raised the number to 420 and since that number was given have not come up with a further prediction. With production at lower levels than anticipated in the ensuing years + the wing issue needing rectification, I wonder what number of frames Airbus currently think they will need to produce before program break even. I imagine it must be 500+.
At that level, Tesla’s market cap is about half of that of Ford or General Motors, which sell a far greater number of vehicles annually.
That was 4 months(Oct 2013) ago he made the statement. Have things really changed that much?
"Tesla's stock is up 5.5% to $173.52 today. The stock is up 414% year-to-date. But many have argued that the stock is overpriced.
In an interview with Bloomberg TV's Guy Johnson, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said he thinks the current price is "more than we have the right to deserve."
"The stock price that we have is more than we have any right to deserve. I'm not going to sit here and say we deserve every penny of that. I think it's more than we have any right to deserve."
They can slowly change the factory over to grapheme if it is better and produce them also depending on which has the larger demand? The rate of change over could be driven by demand for both products. It could go hand in hand with a redesign of their car model offerings.
I think the best you are going to see is APPLE participating in the battery plant. Using their money, it might avoid the need for a secondary offer/listing to fund it
"There are certain occupations that do not have to receive overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Included in this list are mechanics employed by automobile, truck, or farm implement dealers"
More congestion, and less parking available at the plant(part of the new factory wil be built on existing parking lot land) They must be planning on shutting down(or off loading) something else to keep the overall headcount in Everett about the same as it is now.
I thought there were talks of boeing marhelping to market Bombadiers airplane but cannot find the article. That might be there plan for those smaller planes? Here is an article from 2010 that I did find.
"In his report, Leake said it is unreasonable to assume that Boeing is going to sit back as the various potential competitors around the world scoop up the 100-seat market and then look to build even larger aircraft. The assumption is "naive," he said. "Investors should not count out such a simple solution as a joint venture with one of the better 100-seater platforms."
"A Boeing-Bombardier JV would be far more attractive to both parties than the lose-lose scenario that is likely to evolve with five regional jet [manufacturers], Boeing, and Airbus all fighting for the same narrow band of capacity," Leake wrote. "Similarly, we see an Airbus-Embraer JV as a nice cultural fit."
In the 1980s, Boeing briefly owned deHavilland Canada (now owned by Bombardier) and "got a very good look at small aircraft economics," Leake noted. The view was not inspiring. "Put simply, the smaller the plane, the thinner the margin."
Theoretically, a partnership with Boeing "would [likely] preclude Bombardier from going above 150 seats," said analyst Scott Hamilton of Leeham Co. Additionally, Boeing could assist Bombardier in its sales effort for its C-Series 100-seaters, said Hamilton, who also suggested that a partnership might raise antitrust issues.
Cellular Phones emit radiation. Not that all radiation is “bad”, but cell phones emit radiation that is perceived to be a “stress” to the body. Especially to the brain, as observed in the latest NIH (National Institute for Health) study. The findings were quite simple. Cell phone usage next to the ear for a duration on 1 hour dramatically affected brain cell physiology. In fact, a recent study has found correlations with cell phone usage and cancer (1).
When a statement like this has been made in the past by Boeing, it typically means "assembled" only. Anyone know if the composite fabrication of the components will be in Everett also(wing skins, spars etc).
It is almost certain that any metallic parts for the wing will not be built in Everett.
Love this part of their article, the fire started in the engine area. Does that mean the back of the car were the electric motor/engine is?
However, the electric-car maker is under fire again after another Model S burst into flames -- this time, while the vehicle was parked. Toronto Fire Services said the fire started in the engine area of a Tesla car in a Toronto parking garage earlier this month, though Canadian officials have not yet confirmed the actual source of the fire.
Volvo's are the best if a person can afford one based/proven on history, let alone be able to afford a risky TESTA
