Level 3 Layoff Rumors

Originally posted on VoIP & Gadgets Blog, here:

10 - Level 3 CommunicationsI received some information from a source claiming to work for Level 3 Communications.  He stated, "They are not doing well. Just laid off 4% of the workforce.  14% planned in January."

File this under pure speculation / rumor at this point. I am going to contact my Level 3 ASAP to confirm. Stay tuned...

Let me add that Level 3 is a public company and I believe as part of SEC rules have to disclose layoffs and I see no such disclosure on their website.
