Proposal Would Mean Air Force Job Cuts in Ohio

- peperoni -

Officials say new cuts announced by the U.S. Air Force will mean a loss of about 800 jobs at Air National guard bases in Ohio and 160 positions at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton.

The Air Force on Tuesday announced that President Barack Obama's proposal for the upcoming budget year calls for a reduction of about 10,000 positions nationwide.

In Ohio, the Adjutant General's Department says 846 full- and part-time jobs would be eliminated at Air National Guard bases in Mansfield and Rickenbacker in Columbus. The base in Springfield would lose 47 full-time jobs.

Report: Retirement Payouts Costing Ohio Entities

A report says local Ohio governments pay out millions of dollars each year to retiring employees for accrued sick leave and vacation time that was never taken.

Elected officials say the payouts are troubling but likely can't be eliminated, while public employees say they've earned the money and saved taxpayers by not taking time off work.

The Middletown Journal reports local governments paid out more than $5 million to departing employees, including $1.7 million in Butler County and more than $1 million in Warren County.
