DHL cutting 9,500 jobs

Have you read this news?

Global delivery company DHL announced Monday that it was cutting 9,500 jobs as it discontinues air and ground operations within the United States.

DHL said its DHL Express unit will continue to operate between the United States and other nations. But the company said it was dropping “domestic-only” air and ground services within the United States by Jan. 30 “to minimize future uncertainties.”

So sad. My uncle has two friends working for DHL somewhere in the US. Just imagine 9,500 people will lose their jobs! Thank goodness we are not hearing this kind of news here in the country. Think how many would lose their jobs if say, Airfreight 2100 would close its operations here?

I just wish everything will turn around for the better soon.
