stock is still below $3 a share today

Oh, to be a fly on the wall in TT's office to hear what he has to say about the dismal stock prices. I'm sure that LL will give him a reach around to cheer him up, as he whispers staff reduction in his ear.

I heard that if you work in the ERC they are offering relocation assistance to Guam and Suriname. Does anyone else have more information on this?

I heard yesterday they're nowhere near the desired number and that more layoffs are planned throughout the week to get there. Not sure if this is true, I have no idea where the person got their info, but since this is Windstream, I'm leaning more... read more

Layoff based on salary

Many of the layoffs today were based on pay. The senior people with the most knowledge were released. I don’t know how we are going to get by with the people we have here now. Isn’t it illegal to fire people based on pay? Guess we will all have to... read more
