BIG FLATS, N.Y. (AP) Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., citing declining military budgets and a tough economy, said it will close its plant in upstate New York and eliminate all 570 jobs.
Employees at the 5-year-old facility, which has seen its ranks dwindle from a peak of 1,300, were told Monday that the plant would close as of Dec. 31 and its work transitioned to Sikorsky's West Palm Beach, Fla., facility.
They are closing a plant that is in a DARK BLUE STATE and moving the work to a state that is up for grabs.
Wonder if we will see more of this before Nov.
Wonder how many jobs will move from NY and CA to, hmmm, OHIO.
