Vandalia-based PSA Airlines will soon be in the market for hundreds of new employees. President Keith Houk says the regional carrier is adding more than 900 jobs in Dayton, Akron, Charlotte and Knoxville.
“It’ll include pilots, flight attendants, mechanics, general office workers, dispatchers and just a variety of employees,” says Houk.
Dayton-area leaders are breathing sighs of relief as the proposed budget deal in Congress appears to be ending the across-the-board cuts known as sequestration.
“This deal would prevent the sequester for a 2-year period, and it also would give certainty to the Department of Defense,” said Rep. Mike Turner of Ohio’s 10th district. He’s relieved by the outcome after a year of belt-tightening for lots of government bodies, including the Pentagon. With the proposed deal the Pentagon avoids $20 billion in would-be sequestration cuts.
