Spirit to lay off 2,800 employees - with more to come

Well, things just went from bad to worse.

Wichita’s largest employer, Spirit AeroSystems, announced Friday that it will lay off 2,800 workers due to uncertainty about production of the Boeing 737 Max.
All 2,800 employees work in Wichita. The layoffs will be followed by further cuts later this month at the company’s Tulsa and McAlestar, Oklahoma, locations, according to a news release sent out by the company.
