Verizon to cut more than 10,000 worker
Jan 26, 2010
NEW YORK - Verizon Communications Inc. said Tuesday it plans to cut more than 10,000 workers from its landline division this year as customers continue to get rid of home telephone service.
The telecom giant made the disclosure the same day it reported a loss in the final quarter of last year as the company spent $3 billion on severance and other costs that stemmed from its decision to lay off thousands of workers last year.
Verizon posted a net loss of $653 million, or 23 cents a share, in the three months ended Dec. 31, compared with a profit of $1.24 billion, or 43 cents a share, a year earlier. Revenue rose 10 percent to $27.1 billion.
