The Oshkosh Corporation is making another round of mass layoffs in its defense division.
John Daggett is a spokesman for the Oshkosh-based company. He says up to 300 hourly workers and 70 salary positions will be cut in December. Most of the salary position cuts will be temporary employees, early retirements, and leaving open positions unfilled.
Daggett says the move is necessary because U.S. military spending is down significantly.
The company cut 700 workers last July and 900 the summer before. Oshkosh Defense will still employ 1,800 workers in Oshkosh, and other facilities around the world, after the cuts.
