Hundreds of aviation workers gathered in frond of Raytheon Saturday afternoon in hopes of keeping their jobs in Wichita.
Last week, Cessna announced plans to cut more than 1,200 jobs. Workers say they are concerned there will be more aviation cuts as jobs are outsourced to other countries.
Raytheon maintenance worker Brian Sims is worried his job will leave the country. Sims has worked for the company for 19 years. He says keeping jobs here is the only way to guarantee his children's future.
Those who attended the rally say the cuts would not only affect aviation workers, but Wichita as a whole. They say the jobs have made Wichita what it is today and they cannot stand idle while the aviation companies outsource jobs to other countries.
Wichita mayoral candidates Bill Warren and Jane Knight were also at the rally to show their support.
