And I didn’t kill anyone.
The Max software — plagued by issues that could keep the planes grounded months longer after U.S. regulators this week revealed a new flaw — was developed at a time Boeing was laying off experienced engineers and pressing suppliers to cut costs.
Increasingly, the iconic American plane-maker and its subcontractors have relied on temporary workers making as little as $9 an hour to develop and test software, often from countries lacking a deep background in aerospace — notably India.
I hope Boeing goes bankrupt.
Update: Upon further reflection I’m struggling to reconcile two opposite policies of the Congress; a fifteen dollar an hour minimum wage for busboys and at the local car wash, versus nine dollars an hour for H1-B engineers who are displacing American engineers (including your’s truly) and working on the software that keeps the airplane from crashing (oops!).
Can anyone explain that to me?
