It would be cheaper to put those workers on unemployment/welfare. As it is we are paying their salaries and benefits, PLUS we are paying for materiel (which we don't really want or need). Go straight to unemployment and you save the cost of the materiel. Eventually those folks will surely find other work and get off unemployment, and we still have the cost of the materiel.

Defense shouldn't be a welfare program for defense contractors.
