Lockheed Martin Moves 560 Georgia Jobs To Texas

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) -Officials at Lockheed Martin have announced the company is moving 560 Marietta-based manufacturing jobs to Texas.

The company says employees who worked on F-22 Raptor stealth fighter jets will be relocated to Fort Worth next year. About 600 Lockheed employees work on F-22 jets in Marietta.
