Dish is firing employees who are experts in their field like RF, wireless , IP transport whose salary is good around 100K+. Dish Wireless want Engineers, with salary less than 100K and trying to run the wireless business as satellite business. Very Foolish Approach.

Was the a recent layoff, like 6/11/21 at this company.
They are a content provider only, while most cable/telcos are internet providers and content providers. Dish has no value other than entertainment, so when something comes along like COVID, recessions, etc. that service is usually the first one jettisoned.
How many were cut this go around? I saw Dish's Q2/2020 earnings report and they were hemorrhaging even more subscribers during the COVID shutdown months and assumed another layoff was incoming.
The longer it takes for Charlie to get any profit whatsoever from the wireless business and start paying for the billions he has spent on bandwidth, the more layoffs will happen.
More nasty from a nasty business not surprised.
