The $487 billion already cut from DoD’s 10-year budget has begun to trickle down to all 50 states – American workers are losing their jobs today. Sequestration and the $1 trillion cut to the DoD budget will trigger devastating layoffs in the aerospace and defense industry, in its supply chain and in communities across America. It is estimated that more than 1 million jobs will be lost as a result.
And that doesn’t include additional job losses from sequestration cuts to FAA and NASA. Enough is enough. America’s global leadership in aerospace and defense is on the brink of becoming second to the rest of the world. Our nation’s security and jobs are on the line.
