Navy Cutting 3000 Jobs

From this morning’s Virginia Pilot, by the numbers:

30 – Maintenance for 30 ships at private yards will be canceled from April to September.

250 – Depot maintenance for about 250 aircraft will cease between April and September.

3,000 – Shipyards’ workforce will be reduced by more than 3,000 positions when temporary civilian positions are cut. Also, base spending will be reduced and some upgrades and repairs will not be made.
