Nearly 200 Laid off at Albuquerque's Eclipse Aviation
Eclipse Aviation released approximately 190 temporary workers. This affects nine percent of Eclipse's total workforce. The company insists the labor move is not a layoff because it does not affect any direct employees. Eclipse's total employment remains at about 1865. The majority of the released temporary workers in Albuquerque were hired from outside of New Mexico. They will return to their agency for further job placement.The company was not available for comment.
