AOL posted a list of the 12 worst job-killing companies in the US, and United Space Alliance comes in at number eight-
8. United Space Alliance
Number of Jobs Killed: 1,950
A major contractor for NASA, United Space Alliance announced in April that it would cut 1,950 jobs as the U.S. space agency began winding down its space shuttle program. The last of those flights was completed last month with the return of the Atlantis space shuttle. The end of the flights is expected to reduce United Space Alliance’s headcount by about half — to around 2,800.
