OSHKOSH - Oshkosh Corporation is holding a job fair later this week for the approximately 760 workers being laid off this summer.

The event is only for Oshkosh Defense production employees.

Twenty-nine area companies which are looking to fill 1,600 jobs will participate.

The job fair runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday at the Oshkosh Convention Center.

Oshkosh Defense says it needs to scale back its workforce because of military spending cuts.
