That gosh darn gov't. What business does it have spending our tax dollars creating jobs and spending money on research.

Not a big fan of the print version of this paper seeing as how I'm way down here in Florida, but the online article makes no mention of hiring new people. If they did, they wouldn't be local,sounds like they would be looking for engineering graduates from Purdue University.

Regardless of how many local hires it's still good news for a local company doing high level engineering work for NASA. As they increase their business, their company will grow and that helps everyone in Erie & Huron (and surrounding) counties. Growing companies create jobs & hire people.
