Hawker Beechcraft to lay off 130

Hawker Beechcraft personnel officials have filed so-called “warn” notices with the state of Kansas of 130 layoffs to take effect as soon as the end of August.

The notices involve hourly employees, and serve as a 60-day warning of potential layoffs. Last year Hawker Beechcraft, like every major and minor aircraft manufacturer, had massive layoffs. Those layoffs continued at Hawker Beechcraft through January. The layoffs triggered a worker protest last September.
