HP could lay off up to 30 000 workers

The bad economic news coming from HP, where apparently the accounts do not add up, so you are considering what all companies are going through a rough patch: Cut your template.

As you read: At Hewlett-Packard are adding numbers and nothing to give them the bills, which according to The Wall Street Journal, raised fire between 8% and 10% of its workforce, ie 25,000 to 30,000 workers go into the street.

According to U.S. newspaper the drastic cuts could be made official next week, when HP submit its quarterly accounts, since the numbers will evidence a decrease in revenues and profits from encouraging.

It was unclear the exact number of workers affected, although the sources they handle themselves in WSJ that said they would be affected all areas of business.

Matter of waiting for confirmation (and hopefully disprove) the information. The amazing truth is that nothing in such competitive times like these, see manufacturers make mass redundancies if they fail the estimated benefits … It is the sad reality of the world we live: While Facebook celebrated its listing on the stock, HP is preparing to deliver bad news.
