In a couple of recent articles, IBJ has mentioned our budding defense industry in Indiana.
What IBJ fails to disclose are the 14,580 permanent jobs lost in Indiana in our defense industry over the past 30 years. Over 830 of these jobs were lost in 2010 alone. Furthermore, more losses in this industry are predicted over the next three years.
Hopefully, IBJ will do a little more research before making irrational comments in future articles and not mislead the public.
