Perfect way to get rid of us old-timers

I'm wondering if Kimberly-Clark will use the 2018 layoffs as an excuse to get rid of more of us old-timers... The management has certainly been doing its best to make our lives miserable in hopes we would leave on our own... I really wish age... read more

At least everybody is hearing about this...

This is just the beginning

This is just a beginning, guys. I would bare all the anxiousness that I'm feeling right know if I knew that things will become better after this layoffs (even if my job goes under the bus). But with this management, completely vision blind and... read more

How many in the US?

Anybody knows how many of the announced layoffs will be in the US? Kimberly-Clark is a big company, and I'm thinking that laying off those in countries with better benefits that cost more will be the way they'll go. I still might be wrong, because at... read more

Anybody actually surprised by this news?
