I think that they should the government get off there butts and hammer out a budget deal. We cannot afford to cut are defence look around us and the things that going on in this world. Do you think it's going to get better not if you cut defence your going to lose tons of jobs all across the board.

Ps just plain stupid on the governments part get real.

I worked there when things were good for 24 and half years. Then they laid me off 6 months before I could fully retire or 25 years of service. I receive only half of my retirement monthly allotment as a result. I also do not receive any medical benefits like I would have gotten if I had full retirement. So good luck with this company, they screwed me

IF Lockheed lays you off, you can always use your 401k money to get into your own business. And on a tax-deferred basis at that.
