Spirit AeroSystems to Cut Over 400 Jobs in Kansas Amid Boeing Production Issues

  • 2 months ago
Aerospace supplier Spirit AeroSystems announced plans to lay off over 400 employees in Kansas amid production issues at Boeing, one of its major clients. Boeing has faced issues, including a jet door blowing out and quality control problems uncovered by whistleblowers involving its 737 Max planes. The layoffs are meant to address a production slowdown on commercial programs at Spirit's Wichita plant. Whistleblowers have drawn scrutiny from regulators over Boeing's oversight and quality control.
