Microsoft to cut 9,000 jobs with Nokia plant closures in China
Microsoft will close two manufacturing plants in China, formerly used by Nokia to make phones. Around 9,000 jobs would be cut with the closure of the facilities, located in Beijing and Dongguan.
Microsoft will apparently transfer some of the equipment from the plants to Vietnam, according to MarketWatch:
The 9,000 jobs being cut will be part of the 18,000 jobs that Microsoft announced plans to cut in July 2014 following their acquisition of the Nokia Devices and Services division.
