The Walker Budget Is Already Working! Part XXXV

This is getting so depressing:
Frontier Airlines plans to cut 120 positions in Milwaukee in early January, the airline revealed in a mass layoff noticed filed Thursday with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development.

Frontier, which is owned by Indianapolis-based Republic Airways Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: RJET), stated in the notice that the cuts will be made between Jan. 6 and Jan. 13 and involve employees at General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee, as well as the airline’s maintenance facility, 555 W. Air Cargo Way.

The Department of Workforce Development and the Milwaukee HIRE Center will provide outplacement services for affected workers.

The planned cuts are the second major layoff announced by Frontier in recent months. Frontier, which has been reducing service at Mitchell, announced in September that it would eliminate 213 jobs in Milwaukee between Nov. 14 and Nov. 23
Will we have any jobs left by the time we can get Walker out of office?
