Lockheed Martin Offers Voluntary Layoff Packages to 6,500 Employees

You can add aerospace to the list of industries that seem to be sputtering. The latest sign of this is Lockheed Martin's announcement that they are offering voluntary lay-off packages to about 6,500 employees. All U.S.-based, salaried employees who report to Lockheed's corporate headquarters or internal business services organization will be receiving severance offers to leave their jobs this fall, as will about 5,000 employees who work in areas such as payroll and information technology.
