Qualcomm to lay off 15 percent of its workforce


Qualcomm plans to lay off 15 percent of its workforce as part of a major company restructure which is aimed to improve the company's financial performance. 

Improvement in this regard is a must for Qualcomm, with it's quarterly revenue down 14 percent from last year and net income dropping 35 percent to $1.6 Billion. Qualcomm has also recently lowered it's earning forecast for this year, for the 3rd time this year, which is a clear indication that the company is performing well below what anyone expected.
