Qualcomm, which announced it would be laying off 15 percent of its workforce in July, is now reducing its full-time head count and making "a significant reduction of our temporary workforce," according to a statement made to the Reader. "We are in the process of notifying employees. We haven't provided a more specific breakdown."
Meanwhile, bitter posts are going up on thelayoff.com. Here's one from today: "Kids, we will need to cancel our country club membership since I got my layoff notice from Qualcomm this week. Honey, you need to go back to work since I am not sure what work I can find now that still pays six figures."
Here's another from today: "If rumors are true, [Human Resources] and management should be honest and tell people NOW. But again, expecting caring behavior from these people is just plain dumb!"
