How’s this for an economic stimulus?
Obama’s defense cuts will cost St. Louis 30,000 local jobs.
Obama’s planned defense budget cutbacks will slow production of locally-built C-17 cargo planes and will eliminate the jobs of the employees who make them. KSDK has video.
Thousands of jobs could be in jeopardy at St. Louis’ second largest employer: Boeing.
The aerospace company announced the government’s planned defense budget cutbacks will slow production of two locally-built planes and eliminate the jobs of the employees who make them. Michael Moran has helped build hundreds, if not thousands, of C-17 cargo planes.
…The bottom line is Boeing needs to get through to President Obama, Congress and Secretary Gates. If not, they stand to lose more than 5,000 jobs at Boeing in St. Louis, and 30,000 total local jobs, including suppliers.
Boeing executives are reaching out to anyone who will listen. They’re trying to get Congress to put the planes back in the budget.
It’s just a shame Boeing is not a subsidiary of ACORN.
Then they would be hiring.
