After crossing back into the South, Kim said, in English to Trump, "Good to see you again" and added that he would have "never expected" to see the president "at this place."

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

Boeing's 737 Max Software Outsourced to $9-an-Hour Engineers --Planemaker and suppliers used lower-paid temporary workers | 28 June 2019 | It remains the mystery at the heart of Boeing Co.'s 737 Max crisis: how [Boeing] made seemingly basic software mistakes leading to a pair of deadly crashes. Longtime Boeing engineers say the effort was complicated by a push to outsource work to lower-paid contractors. 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.
