DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Early retirement and buyout offers at Ohio's largest military base will be available to only a few dozen of the more than 500 base employees who applied for them.
The incentives at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton allow employees to retire early or quit their jobs with severance pay.
But base spokesman Daryl Mayer says only employees who have someone facing a job loss at the base lined up to replace them are allowed to take the offers.
The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1tuCR6P ) reports that base figures show that only 37 of 537 employees who applied for the offers met that standard.
About 370 Wright-Patterson positions are expected to be cut by Oct. 1 as part of an Air-Force wide elimination of jobs intended to save over $1 billion.
