OSHKOSH (WITI) -- Oshkosh Corp. is cutting about 760 jobs from its defense division this summer.

Oshkosh Corp. executives say the cuts are due to decreased spending by the Pentagon.

About 700 hourly positions will be cut beginning in June, and another 60 salaried positions will be eliminated starting in July.

The cuts represent nearly 30 percent of its defense division workforce.
