Google apparently told employees on a Sunday. Seems an odd day to tell someone to get laid off.
Google bought Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billions. Mostly because Motorola's vast patent portfolio. Motorola Mobility is a struggling phone maker and Google needs to fix this to keep some additional value.
The New York Times reports that Google has told employees that 20% of the work force will be fired and a third of its 94 offies worldwide will be closed.
A third of the job cuts will be in the United States. Overall Motorola wants to cut 4,000 employees.
