Employment: Hughes' Support for Harman

July 07, 1994

First, Hughes Aircraft Co., long a high-tech fixture in Playa del Rey, El Segundo and Torrance, generated controversy by distributing a form letter "encouraging" its employees to give money to incumbent Rep. Jane Harman (D-Marina del Rey), believing that Harman could help Hughes and the rest of the aerospace industry.

Then, (last week), Hughes announced 3,200 job cuts in California.

I doubt that the many Hughes employees who dutifully gave Jane Harman their contributions and votes, and who will soon join the unemployment rolls, feel that they made a wise investment.
