HP To Outsource Thousands of Jobs

The headlines all said that HP was cutting 9,000 jobs, but did you read past the first paragraph of the story? Check this out from the story linked above:

"The Palo Alto, California-based company plans to replace about 6,000 of the eliminated positions with workers in different countries."

So…that's 3,000 jobs cut and 6,000 outsourced. Call it what it is, HP. Sure, we know that with your 300,000 employees we're talking about a tiny percent of your workforce here, but don't try to hide outsourcing as layoffs. That's just…weird, actually.
