Lockheed Martin to cut 600 jobs amid tough market

  • Lockheed Martin (LMT) will lay off 600 employees in its Mission Systems and Training Division this month.
  • The plan is not linked to the government shutdown, but instead stems from a lackluster business environment, Reuters notes, citing a company spokesman.
  • "This action is necessary to address continuing challenges in our business  environment, including continued uncertain program funding, delays in contract awards and an extremely competitive market," LMT says.
