More Hawker Beechcraft layoffs

Posted By on Fri, Nov 13, 2009 at 2:02 PM

Roby Brock has a report on an undisclosed number of additional layoffs at the Hawker Beechcraft plant at the Little Rock airport. Two blog readers with friends on the workforce there says the number is sizable, perhaps 175 of a remaining work force of more than 400. The private plane facility once employed 600 before layoffs in May and August.

These are good jobs, by the way. As the company restructures and trims facilities  to consolidate in fewerlocations it will be interesting to see if state rescue packages come into play.

A blog reader reports a friend at Hawker who got 13 weeks severance and health coverage through December with his layoff notice.
