In the article "Raytheon awarded $886.5 million contract" by: Ann Schrader what matters is that this group in Aurora makes GPS devices for the US Air Force. There are already around 2,400 people that are specializing in creating global positioning devices. This is very good for the Air Force because this is great technology for them that helps them keep the world safe and themselves safe. This contract will open 300 new high paying jobs this is very important in the economy that we have right now. Also this is a lot of money that is going to towards the war and we have already put so much money into the war. We could be using this money to be paying debts to other country's so that we don't start another war. There are also a lot of budget cuts for schools and some of this money could as lo go to schools so that teachers could be payed more and school could have better supplies.
