IBM cuts

The rumors have been swirling for weeks that it would happen on a Tuesday and I guess this is the Tuesday – IBM in Essex Junction is cutting jobs again today.

The scope of the cuts is unclear right now, but it appears that less than 500 people will be laid off.

Anyone who has lost their job in Vermont over the last 18 months should call the state Department of Labor to file for unemployment benefits. Their hotline is 1-877-214-3330.
