Boeing trying to negotiate a better deal

State politicians should negotiate, not cave

Boeing is negotiating to get the best deal possible. Why? To make higher profits [“Boeing 777X wish list asks states to grant big savings,” page one, Dec. 6].

It is not in the business of community service. Our state politicians should negotiate with Boeing to benefit the taxpayers.

Boeing started negotiations by asking for the moon to help it be profitable. While we want it to be profitable, our politicians should counteroffer by asking for a share of the profits to offset the costs of site and infrastructure improvements. Negotiate, don’t cave.

Those profits that have been going to management bonuses and $260,000-a-month pensions could be used to offset the taxes that will need to be increased to pay for the improvements that Boeing is asking for.

— Bill Bruce, Seattle
