While Cessna Aircraft announced deeper job cuts today, the waiting continues for Hawker Beechcraft employees. Hawker Beechcraft has warned employees to expect deep cuts that will affect all departments and levels. But it isn’t yet prepared to say how many jobs will be cut. The rumors are everywhere.
“The waiting is hard,” said a teary wife of a Hawker Beechcraft worker who called this morning. She is facing surgery in late February and hopes her husband will have a job.
At the same time, it’s a tough day at Cessna. Employees are receiving 60-day layoff notices. While the company says the majority will know today whether they are losing their job, the notices will be issued over the next few weeks. The economy is taking its toll on the general aviation market. These are surely tough times.
