Xerox will lay off 2,500 employees
WXXI news ^ | 11/14/12 | crichton

Posted on 11/15/2012 8:45:32 PM PST by knak

Xerox announced today they will lay off 2,500 workers world wide. This comes as a result of the company taking a $100 million charge to enable restructuring in the fourth quarter.

The majority of cuts will be in the service side of the Xerox business, despite a growth in this section for the company. Services now account for more than half of Xerox's revenue.

Employment in Rochester is primarily centered on the technology side of the business, or the company's legacy side, Xeroc officials say. No details have been released on the impact of any reductions in the Rochester area.

The nation will surpass the unemployment statistics registered in the Great Depression, Iran will have the bomb, there will be rioting and open warfare all across the Middle East, and the media will still be telling us that, “Everything’s okay” while the nation’s Blacks and our Hollywood “personalities” will be crowing about what a great man he is.

Help me out please (memory-wise).

Is (or was) Xerox a big leftie-supporting organization?

I seem to remember from the (impeached and disbarred) Clinton years that Xerox was a contributor to the dark side. Corrections requested.

There seems to be a lot of this going around now that the “election” is almost over (We’re still counting “votes” here in Arizona)and the Kenyan has been “reelected”. The “voters” in this country are morons and gullible fools. Barry Benghazi played them like a fiddle.

Actually, they're just laying off one employee 25,000 times.

Hope and change, baby. But, hey, there’ll be plenty of Wal-Mart jobs on Black Friday when the store workers walk out.

It's the NE storm that's causing all the job losses...so they say. Yeah. It's the big 'ol nasty storm. Pay no attention to the numbers.

How that storm destroyed thousands of jobs nation wide is beyond me, but I'm sure there are a lot of Oboma supporters who are dumb enough to fall for that lame excuse.

They have been laying off people for the last 10 years. Email and personal computers have really cut down the need for xerox copies.

If the goal is to defeat this nation he is already seen as a success.

Received an email today which I did have to photocopy and noticed in green print they asked us to do the “green thing” and find some means for reproduction other than copying!

To #21. Re “some other means for reproduction other than copying”. Well, there goes copulation right out the window.

“Do the ‘Green Thing’.” Sounds like something out of an old SciFi movie. “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”. Now that was some “reproducing”. Like peas in a pod.

The only “Green thing” I want and need badly is MONEY, “LETTUCE”, Moolah, C-Notes (and I don’t mean the musical ones), “a Grant”.

Garrett Strong sang it nicely, “Money, That’s What I Want”.

You can keep the “Hope” and the “Change” (Chump Change), I want the real stuff, before Obamacare kills me.

I thought that was funny Charles, even if no one else replied to you. They just don’t appreciate fine humor.

You are correct. In addition, the CEO Ursula Burns, was/is on Obama’s job council. Big on the social aware/diversity/green train. Right out of Atlas Shrugged.

Xerox is much more than copies (and printers). Xerox runs most of the automated toll road operations up and down the east coast, and some on the west coast and elsewhere.
