Boeing Won't Build CST-100 On Its Own

Boeing Preparing Layoff Notices in Case of Commercial Crew Loss, SpaceNews

"Hoping for the best, but preparing for defeat, Boeing will send out about 215 potential layoff notices to employees currently working on its NASA CST-100 Commercial Crew program. The 60-day notices, required under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN), are due to be distributed on June 20 to about 170 employees in Houston and 45 in Florida in case Boeing is not selected for an upcoming Commercial Crew Transportation Capability (CCtCap) contract, Boeing spokesman Adam Morgan told SpaceNews."

Keith's note: So much for any thought that Boeing was ever interested in investing any significant company funds for their CST-100.
