They make billions, have very high salaries for their executives, but yet want to cut out 6,000 to gain back more millions to increase the billions even higher. They get capital gains tax perks, they can even save more billions if they kept their HQ out of the USA. So all this to me is just another racket.

Cisco is no different that the rest in this sort of racket to get a bigger piece of the action!

I don't sympathize with non college graduates in such positions as I had 4 bachelors degrees when I was 21.
