Air Force Base Implements Hiring Freeze

DAYTON, Ohio, Aug. 16 (UPI) — Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, has put a hiring freeze into effect, officials say.

The 90-day hiring freeze is accompanied by buyouts and early retirement to eligible employees, as well as reducing the number of temporary employees, the Dayton (Ohio) Daily News reported.

Wright-Patterson spokesman Daryl Mayer said Monday he had no information on how this will affect employment at the base, which is the largest single-site employer in Ohio.

“Officials project that all major commands, direct reporting units and field operation agencies will be affected by these actions,” the Air Force said.

The reduction of employees at the base stems from pressure from Congress and the White House to cut spending and reduce the federal budget deficit.

“We are mindful of the potential impacts of budget constraints on our civilian force and their families, which is why we are seeking to reduce the need for involuntary measures,” said Lt. Gen. Darrell Jones, the Air Force’s deputy chief of staff for manpower, personnel and services.
