While the sounds of re-constitution of the Soviet Empire s her about the world, the effects of big business consolidation sway to the rhythm of monopoly.

Recently the aircraft industry has experienced a certain consolidation and the affects are showing:

Textron lays off 575 in Kansas

The company made the announcement in an email to employees Wednesday morning.

The company says the reduction affects “all areas of the Beechcraft and Cessna businesses, including salaried and hourly employees in positions spanning from management to non-management levels. ”

The company says employees affected by the reduction are receiving 60-day WARN (Worker Adjustment & Retraining Notification) notices.

Oddly enough I was mulling about technology and the labor force yesterday while mowing. Those two and the idea of monopoly’s.  

Ridiculous stuff for a fellow to be thinking about, I know. Especially when the chances of morel mushrooms are still good.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
