Lockheed Martin Plans To Lay Off 132 At FBI Site In West Virginia

Just another reminder that federal government "austerity" means increased unemployment. Here is the Charleston Daily Mail with the story:
Lockheed Martin Corp. plans to lay off 132 workers at the FBI Criminal Justice Information Services site in Harrison County.

Lockheed's Information Systems & Global Solutions provides operations and maintenance support for the FBI center.

Company spokeswoman Lindsay Wilson tells The Exponent Telegram that the company didn't win a follow-up contract to provide the services. The existing contract will be completed at the end of the month.
And so it goes.

Bonus: A little ditty about West Virginia


  1. The contractor who picks up the contract Lockheed lost will have to hire a bunch of workers to fill the place of the Lockheed employees. Often, they hire back many of the same ones.

  2. Fair enough, but will they be earning the same when they are hired back ?


  3. G*ddamn that man can sing! May you rest in peace John Denver.
