Air Force Targets Rickenbacker, Mansfield For Job Cuts
Officials say new cuts announced by the U.S. Air Force will mean a loss of about 800 jobs at Air National guard bases in Ohio and 160 positions at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton.
The Air Force this week announced that President Barack Obama’s proposal for the upcoming budget year calls for a reduction of about 10,000 positions nationwide.
In Ohio, the Adjutant General’s Department says 846 full- and part-time jobs would be eliminated at Air National Guard bases in Mansfield and Rickenbacker in Columbus. The base in Springfield would lose 47 full-time jobs.
Some of the cuts will be offset by new part-time jobs.
At Wright-Patterson, a spokesman says the new changes, combined with previous announcements, will mean a net loss of 395 military and civilian jobs.
