“I am disappointed that the Boeing Company has decided to cut as many as 4,000 jobs in Washington state by June 2016, with additional cuts possible by the end of the year. Although we do not yet know exactly where in our state the job cuts will take place, the reduction of Boeing’s workforce here will have devastating impacts on our region’s shared prosperity. The effect will be felt immediately by the thousands of hard-working employees—and their families—who have contributed greatly to Boeing’s growth and have demonstrated loyalty to the company over the years. I hope that Boeing will recognize that the world-class workforce in the Pacific Northwest is necessary for their continued success.”
