What I heard today was they were getting layed off by Boeing but the majority of them would get the option to work for Onex or go find work elsewhere. I think due to IAM and SPEEA contracts they have to go through the process.
Some people are like Slinkies. They bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

9,300 layoffs one day, 8000 hired back the next day, and so on. You will only read abou the layoffs and not when the people are hired back.
