Motorola Lays Off 1,000 in China

Motorola is reported to have cut 1,000 jobs from its Chinese R&D facility, leaving only about 100 employees at its Wangjing offices. The company hasn’t confirmed the number of employees that were laid off, although a spokesperson for Motorola announced that there had been job cuts.

The spokesperson noted that, “According to Motorola’s financial results for the fourth quarter of last year, the company dismissed 4,000 employees worldwide, including 3,000 employees from the mobile phone unit. But that is a global figure, and we do not have specific figures for China and other regions.”
