“That cowering remark was the first thing he’s ever done to be helpful to the Machinists. He united us,” said Larry Brown, chief lobbyist in Olympia for the International Association of Machinists (IAM). In January, the Machinists were forced to accept the freezing of their pensions to secure assembly of the future 777X jet in Washington state. To the local workers, Boeing management’s ultimatum felt like they were being “threatened and put up against the wall,” said Grunberg. LOST JOBS Jon Holden, the new IAM district president, said the outcome of the 777X negotiations “could have been a win/win.” Instead, “morale is at an all-time low, and not just among IAM members.” Boeing’s white-collar union, the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace, also has suffered repeated blows from a series of work transfers that will cut more than 6,000 local engineering jobs. John Tracy, Boeing’s Chicago-based chief technology officer and senior vice president in charge of its 55,000 engineers, in an interview defended the transfers as necessary to tap expertise around the company and insisted that McNerney respects engineering.

Man Captured On Surveillance Video Wanted For Malibu Burglary « CBS Los Angeles

Garner died in a state that has a Cigarette Strike Force. He lived and died in a country with 5 percent of the world’s population but 25 percent of its prisoners. In 2012, one of every 108 adults was behind bars, many in federal prisons containing about 40 percent more inmates than they were designed to hold. Most of today’s 2.2 million prisoners will be coming back to their neighborhoods and few of them will have been improved by the experience of incarceration. This will be true even if they did not experience the often deranging use of prolonged solitary confinement, which violates the Eighth Amendment’s ban on “cruel and unusual punishments” and is, to put things plainly, torture. The scandal of mass incarceration is partly produced by the frivolity of the political class, which uses the multiplication of criminal offenses as a form of moral exhibitionism.
