NEC to cut 20,000 jobs

Japanese electronics giant NEC Corp. said it will cut 20,000 workers worldwide as it tries to stanch widening losses from semiconductors and other businesses that have been hard hit by competition and the global economic slump.

The company hopes the job cuts, which will be split equally between Japan and overseas, will help save 80 billion yen over the next two years.
