A new Boeing plant in South Carolina is the subject of a legal battle that's playing out across the South and in Congress.
The controversy is over Boeing's decision to assemble its fuel-efficient 787 Dreamliner in nonunion South Carolina instead of in Washington state, where it has built planes for decades.
The company says South Carolina offered a lot of incentives to get the plant, but the union says Boeing broke the law and violated workers' rights.
