Pompeo Issues Statement on Hawker-Beechcraft Announcement
WICHITA, KS – Businessman and 4th District Congressional candidate Mike Pompeo issued the following statement about Hawker-Beechcraft’s decision to further reduce it’s workforce in Wichita.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the 350 families who lost their jobs today at Hawker-Beechcraft in Wichita. I am deeply concerned about a further reduction of aviation jobs.
“Today’s announcement is further proof our country is moving in the wrong direction. As Kansans lose their jobs, the federal government continues to tax, spend and grow. We must set a new course where we create an economic environment that will encourage private sector growth and give companies the ability to keep and create jobs right here in Kansas.”
