Each week without action by Congress to stop massive sequestration cuts brings the nation closer to a fiscal doomsday that will destroy a million American jobs and expose U.S. troops to new dangers. Sign up here to join the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) Second to None coalition and help keep the heat on Washington until this threat is stopped.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has said the cuts could raise national unemployment by one percent and even the threat of sequestration is already costing jobs and hurting our economy today. IAM President Tom Buffenbarger has warned that “sequestration will result in two indisputable outcomes – more unemployment and a country that is less secure.” Studies at the University of Maryland and George Mason University also confirm that the cuts could destroy between one million and 1.5 million American jobs.
