6-20 Oshkosh Corp Job Fair
Hundreds of workers laid off by Wisconsin's maker of military vehicles are getting lots of help in finding new jobs. The Oshkosh Corporation held a job fair yesterday, where 29 companies sought people for a total of 16-hundred openings. In April, Oshkosh announced the layoffs of 700 hourly employees and 60 salaried workers due mainly to the scaling back of U-S military operations in Afghanistan. Now, the company says the total number of layoffs should be around 535 after many employees took early retirement. The job fair focused solely on production workers.
