>> Production struggles at Boeing's 737 jetliner plants has the company looking to the past for answers. A union official told Reuters that the world's largest plane maker is bringing on retired workers to help fix delays at its plants outside of Seattle. Triggered by shortages of engines and fuselages in its planes after Boeing sped production to record levels in June, the delays are a big problem.
As Boeing's 737s are a cash cow for the company. Boeing has already deployed about 600 employees and new hires in recent weeks to the plant in Renton, Washington to help fix delays. But it's not clear how many retired workers Boeing intends to add to the efforts.
