(Breitbart) Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPQ) announced on Tuesday that the company will cut about 10 percent of its 300,000 member workforce, but appears to be moving "forward" with expanding its use of H1-B foreign work visas.
HP Chairman and CEO Meg Whitman said the company will cut 25,000 to 30,000 more jobs, with most of the job losses coming from the company's enterprises services division that caters to large corporate customers. Whitman stated, "We've done a significant amount of work over the past few years to take costs out and simplify processes and these final actions will eliminate the need for any future corporate restructuring."
The new job slashing is in addition to the 54,000 job layoffs already taken by HP and are expected to mostly hit workers in North America, according to Bloomberg.
