Washington State's Largest Employers
Boeing’s No. 1 on the list of Washington state’s largest employers, but it’s really the federal government that runs the employment show around here.
This latest list of employers is topped by Chicago-based Boeing, with 85,000 employees working at its Commercial Airplanes division and other manufacturing operations in Everett, Renton and elsewhere in the state. That’s almost half of the aerospace company’s 172,000 total employees.
