The Kaiser Foundation lost 794 million last year, but was still generous enough to give need Grady Hospital in Atlanta 5 million of it. Back on track here, again I ask, will those laid off Health IT folks stand a chance with IBM? This was just too close with both articles less than a week apart. BD
NEW YORK - IBM will cut about 5,000 jobs in the United States, adding to similarly large cuts in the past few months, sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters Wednesday.
The job cuts will account for over 4 percent of IBM's U.S. workforce, which totaled around 115,000 at the end of 2008. The sources, who were not authorized to speak publicly on the issue, said the cuts will mostly be in IBM's global services business, which includes outsourcing and consulting services.
