According to the Journal-Sentinel, 500 Frontier Airlines Employees based in the Milwaukee area are set to be released into the wild.
Frontier Airlines will cut nearly 500 Milwaukee employees – nearly half of them flight crew members based at Mitchell International Airport – as a result of a major service reduction here.
Those job cuts will occur in April, according to information Frontier filed Monday with the state Department of Workforce Development under the state’s layoff notice law.
Frontier said 446 employees will be affected by the cuts, to occur between April 15 and April 30. About 230 employees are flight crew members who will be reassigned to bases outside Milwaukee, the company said in its filing.
Denver-based Frontier has about 1,000 employees based in Milwaukee.
This, of course, goes hand in hand with Frontier’s drastic cuts in routes to and from Milwaukee. So what happened here? Frontier came in, “Hoovered” up Midwest and then shut it most of it down. How very “Bain Capital.” How is that productive?
Thanks to this, Milwaukee’s become a little more isolated.
