Sprint Trimming Work Force By 8,000
Today Sprint announced that it is taking drastic cost-cutting measures in an effort to save money. Part of the cost cutting comes in the form of staff reductions. Sprint will layoff 8,000 employees by March 31, with about 10% of that figure coming through the voluntary separation plan announced in late 2008. Sprint said the layoffs will hit every level of its business. Other cost-cutting measures include a freeze in salary increases, a freeze in 401(k) matching, and a freeze in its tuition reimbursement program. Sprint has lost millions of customers over the last year. It will announce its fourth quarter results February 19.

Sprint's customer service is responsive, prices fair, features great.

And they want the government to give them what?
USA needs as many carriers as possible to keep competition high and prices low.
So to all of you haters that are high fives with eachother when...
I laughed though
I laughed at the part about them doing well with customers. If they are doing so well why are they bleeding customers like a trauma victim. I have one expired contract now and a second that lapses in March the iPhone
Easy solution around this
It would be a no brainer to drop those jobs first and keep the American workers.
But then that would make sense, hense why it will not happen.
i do feel bad
