Podcast: 10 Minutes About Future Workforce Requirements

Dec. 30, 2020, © Leeham News: How many airline workers and aerospace manufacturing-supply chain workers have been laid off, voluntarily or involuntarily, in the pandemic?

Kathryn Creedy, who writes for Leeham News and is editor of her own on-line newsletter, Future Aviation/Aerospace Workforce News, answers these and more questions in this episode of 10 Minutes About.

      • Yes, nearing the last few years of work, as opposed to being semi retired, I saw way too many projects out sourced to LCC (low cost countries) such as India and what I’d call start-up companies of convenience… But it would be nice to work a little longer.
