Boeing's 737 Max Software Outsourced to $9-an-Hour Engineers

From Bloomberg: https://www.bloomberg.com/amp/news/articles/2019-06-28/boeing-s-737-max-software-outsourced-to-9-an-hour-engineers?in_source=amp_trending_now_1

"The Max software -- plagued by issues that could keep the planes grounded months longer after U.S. regulators this week revealed a new flaw -- was developed at a time Boeing was laying off experienced engineers and pressing suppliers to cut costs."

"Increasingly, the iconic American planemaker and its subcontractors have relied on temporary workers making as little as $9 an hour to develop and test software, often from countries lacking a deep background in aerospace -- notably India."

Sometimes you get what you pay for.
