Xerox to cut 275 jobs in upstate NY + some advice to PR

from Fox 44 -
"Associated Press - January 15, 2009 4:05 PM ET

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Xerox Corp. says it's cutting 275 jobs in the Rochester area.

The layoffs by the Stamford, Conn.-based office equipment maker are part of a restructuring announced last fall that includes trimming 3,000 jobs from its worldwide payroll of 57,000."
Are there any plans in place to help these folks make the transition? Maybe some support to help them start their own businesses. Or retrain them for teaching jobs or selling jobs? Or is it possible for the Xerox Foundation to create a work training program to help these folks. In addition to helping them, it would make a great story to add to "greening," which is losing its traction anyway.

Notice that the AP calls us "an office equipment maker". Little wonder the stock price won't budge. It's hard to love an office equipment maker. But we have an under appreciated advantage. I'm seeing the internet starting to get old. Print may turn out to be the next big thing. It you see evidence that this may be true. Consider:
Xerox is not copy. Xerox is Print.

Google it. Find it. Xerox it. Anywhere.
