Pratt & Whitney announced in a statement Wednesday that the company will be laying off 80 workers in Connecticut.

The company stated that the layoffs are a direct result of the F119 engine program being completed and "lower customer demand for commercial engine overhaul and repair work throughout the company's global repair network."

"Pratt & Whitney provided voluntary separation offers as described under the collective bargaining agreement with the International Association of Machinists to minimize the impact of this reduction," the statement said.

Workers at the East Hartford and Middletown plants took separation packages, according to a spokesman from the Pratt & Whitney.

Layoffs are expected to begin taking place in early December

I hope they were all Obama voters.

Seeing as that it's Connecticut, the chances are that they are.

If so, good!
