An excerpt:

Blondin said he obtained salary data that indicate Japanese workers make as much or more than Boeing workers in the United States. If costs are not lower abroad, he said, the Machinists want to know why Boeing is not retaining more jobs in the U.S.

"Those assembly jobs and fabrication jobs we saw are lost opportunities for people in Puget Sound and Portland and Wichita," said Blondin, who represents 17,000 workers as president of International Association of Machinists, District 571.

"All these programs reflect several thousand jobs, several thousand Boeing-related jobs," he said.

I agree that the wings should be made in the U.S. Boeing can't really claim the 787's composite technology as its own; it's Japan's.

As well as Mitsubishi and Fuji Heavy Industries (makers of Subaru automobiles).
