JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Lockheed Martin Corp. says it will open a technology support center this September in the Jackson suburb of Clinton, Miss., creating 350 new jobs.

Emily Simone, spokeswoman for the Bethesda, Md.-based company, tells The Associated Press on Tuesday that the mission support center will serve all of Lockheed Martin’s federal customers.

Lockheed Martin will put the center in part of the former corporate headquarters of WorldCom, the telecommunications company that went into bankruptcy in 2002. The former WorldCom campus, with several buildings, is now called the South Pointe Business Park and is just off Interstate 20.

    That’s right L.M. lay off three hundred employees mostly engineers & rehire country bumpkins who can’t add or subtract for a fraction of the payroll in the red neck ignorant south & then, of course blame it on the unions.

    This must have been a paid for announcement.
