Brain Drain at Boeing

NPR's Steve Krueger reports that aerospace conglomerate Boeing has seen a huge number of its engineers leave in the past few months.

Officials at Boeing are considering a number of programs they hope will help them recruit and retain the engineers it needs to stay competitive.
