Topics regarding layoffs at Windstream Corp.
On paper, Windstream had a July operating loss over 400 million. 373 million was a write down of the value of assets on the books. If you back that out as a one-time hit, then subtract out legal fees, etc, Windstream still had a July operating loss... — read more
