51581255 story Lockheed To Furlough 3,000 On Monday, Layoffs Also Kicking In 341 Posted by timothy on Friday October 04, 2013 @09:11PM from the can-lassie-save-the-military-industrial-complex? dept. Dawn Kawamoto writes "Lockheed employees are the latest casualty in the government shutdown, with the defense contractor announcing Friday it plans to furlough 3,000 workers on Monday. But what they didn't mention is they are laying off workers too, says a Lockheed source on the hush-hush. Lockheed, of course, isn't the only defense contractor taking it on the chin. Other contractors include United Technologies, which has furloughed 2,000, and BAE Systems which cut 1,000."
