Pratt Cutting Hundreds Of Jobs In Connecticut

Pratt & Whitney has told the town of East Hartford to expect hundreds of job cuts at its facilities this week. In all it's thought some 450 salaried positions may be at risk across its Connecticut locations, although the company hasn't confirmed those numbers publicly. The cuts come as parent company Raytheon, based in Massachusetts, seeks $1 bn in savings in the next four years, and also battles the disastrous falloff in commercial aerospace business as a result of COVID-19.
