Big Crash Happened! South Carolina Hit by Massive Layoffs from Major Company

At one of its biggest locations in South Carolina, a massive company is currently planning to lay off hundreds of workers by the end of the month.

On July 27, 206 workers at Charter Communications’ Greer site would lose their jobs. Charter Communications provides spectrum services.

Effective July 27, employees at Charter’s 1511 S. Batesville Road location will be affected by layoffs.

A representative for the company claimed that Charter had previously announced it was terminating 74 workers from the same location as part of its “new, streamlined approach to some back office and management support functions.”

“No impact on the local technicians who install our Spectrum products, make service calls, or who build, maintain, and upgrade our local networks,” the representative continued.

Last week, CTInsider revealed that Charter intended to close five call centers—located in California, Michigan, Minnesota, Texas, and Ohio—as well as a support center located in Wisconsin.

A Charter Communications official reports that the Greer layoffs were “communicated to impacted employees nearly two months ago.”

Spokesman Patti Michel continued, saying that Charter gave its workers the option to move inside the organization, and that “many are doing so.”
