Layoffs will occur in 2018 and all of 2019. With the two new companies Colgate aquired, they need to see who will fits and who will not fit with the new groups. They will treat the new companies as the did Toms. Management is nervous but if they did things fairly they would not need to worry. If you believe what management tell you. ....you are the fool.
