Aircraft maker Boeing, which had been a rare employer adding workers through the nationwide labor market downturn last year, announced Friday it will cut 4,500 jobs this year, undoing the employment gains it achieved in 2008.

The job cut in Boeing’s Commercial Airplanes division will take employment in the unit back to 63,500, about where it stood a year ago.
