Kshama Sawant, a socialist newly-elected to the Seattle city council, speaks at a "Build it Here" rally Monday, Nov. 18, 2013, in downtown Seattle. The Washington State Labor Council called for the rally, saying it wanted to show Boeing and state leaders it supports Machinists union members who voted last week to reject contract concessions Boeing said it needed to build the new 777X in Washington. Organizers said that the Machinists deserve to not only build Boeing's next new plane in Washington but to share in the company's prosperity. Over the weekend at the Dubai Airshow, three Middle Eastern airlines signed up to buy 225 of the large, fuel-efficient widebodies in deals worth $95 billion. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
