Seattle City Councilmember-elect shares radical idea with… | www.kirotv.com

On Monday night, she spoke to supporters of Boeing Machinists, six days after they rejected a contract guaranteeing jobs in Everett building the new 777X airliner for eight years, in exchange for new workers giving up their guaranteed company pensions.Now Boeing is threatening to take those jobs to other states. “That will be nothing short of economic terrorism because it\’s going to devastate the state\’s economy,” she said.Sawant is calling for machinists to literally take-possession of the Everett airplane-building factory, if Boeing moves out. She calls that \”democratic ownership.\”“The only response we can have if Boeing executives do not agree to keep the plant here is for the machinists to say the machines are here, the workers are here, we will do the job, we don\’t need the executives. The executives don’t do the work, the machinists do,” she said.Sawant says after workers “take-over” the Everett Boeing plant; they could build things everyone can use.
