Lockheed is going to lay off 123,000


Tuesday, October 30, 2012



I did check this out. The White House has asked Lockheed-Martin NOT to issue notices of lay-offs until December (after the election)

Can it be anymore clear who we are dealing with? He will do anything to get re-elected and if he does....God help America.

Lockheed Martin is going to lay off 123,000 defense workers due to Obama's downsizing of the military. This hit the Drudge report yesterday. This is true!

The law requires Lockheed to give 60-day notice to all to-be-fired employees within 60 days. That drop dead date would be November 1st. Since this would be bad for the election, Obama has promised that our government would cover all Lockheed severance packages to fired employees if Lockheed would not release the names and locations of those losing their jobs until after the election!

Send this to all you know since it will never show up in the news. This posting is from a defense contract newspaper called The Hill. Read details below:

    Hey, Nofearmongering........how about telling that stuff to the people who WORK there and know it is coming?! This has been all over the news, too, even on the far left channels.

  First off Lockheed has 123,000 workers in total and I think you would agree that even if sequestration were to happen, they will not have to layoff their entire workforce. The real number would be closer to 10,000 based on what I am not sure but that was the number Lockheed gave. The reason the number 123,000 has come up is because nobody knows exactly what sequestration will actually do, what contracts will be effected or even what contractors will be effected so they said they would have to send notices to almost their entire workforce to cover their butts in case they had to lay anyone off and comply with WARN notices. The DOL came back and said under the law, mere conjecture does not trigger the obligation for WARN notices. This all was said in June/July 2012. Further more, the DOD has indicated no contract actions on or about 2 January, 2013, and that any action to adjust funding levels on contracts as a result of sequestration would likely not occur for several months after jan 2 leaving plenty of time for WARN notices without wasting States' resources in undertaking employment assistance activities where none are needed and create unnecessary anxiety and uncertainty for workers not to mention driving their stock into the ground which I assure you Lockheed was prob most concerned with.

Lets also point out that nobody expected we would even get to the point of thinking about the actuality of sequestration as it was put in as means of prodding Congress into coming up with a concrete plan for addressing the deficit issue which they haven't been able to do.
