Employees of Airbus: 90,000

Business sections of newspapers rarely carry news about employees, they seem more interested in shareholders. Occasionally, of course, redundancies are on the cards, then the number of employees a firm has are mentioned. I was shocked at how large this figure is. It is further evidence of how vast the aircraft industry is and how acute our climate change callenge is – not least because I was reading this paper whilst flying home from Leipzig.
