Word is the contracts we are getting are nothing more than defense welfare just so the company can be around for a few more years to service the aging and failing equipment we have in the field. Almost all the actual engineering and manufacturing for the new contracts are being outsourced as I learned first hand. We used to create and innovate, all we do now is take someone else's work and repackage it at a 400% premium so the exec's can purchase another piece of real estate while our co-workers get laid off. Sad what's happened to this company.
It's exactly welfare. Members of the House and Senate don't want to tell the voters in their states that the aerospace jobs are going away when NASA could not tie their own shoes if they tried, so they just keep the taxpayer dollars flowing.
