As previously announced, Hawker Beechcraft distributed another round of layoff notices on Wednesday, and one employee said "almost half" the remaining workers at the Salina, Kansas, plant were let go. "There's no reason to be mad about it," said Ben O'Shea after receiving his notice. O'Shea noted that the aviation industry is cyclical, and employees were told the company intends to begin rehiring next year.
