A new Machinists News Network (MNN) video shows the notion of “generational shops” is not a thing of the past. The tradition still lives on today, especially in the aerospace industry.

The video follows IAM Local Lodge 837B members Johnny and Clayton Provine, a father-and-son team who work together on the F18 Super Hornet at Boeing in St. Louis. The duo signifies how important generational aerospace jobs are to the country.

“Aerospace has always been generational,” said IAM Aerospace General Vice President Mark Blondin. “People grow up in an aerospace family – uncles, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers. Aerospace has always been a great family-wage job. I think it’s exciting to see that the tradition continues.”
