The integration of
e-commerce industry adjustment still continue, the electricity supplier giant internal personnel adjustment is inevitable, after Suning acquisition red children cut part of the staff, announced in December last year, the two major electricity supplier company integrating Gome online under the layoffs in progress.
There is news that the United States B2C online business platform of Gome’s internal
suddenly started layoffs last weekend, spread to sectors including mining sales center, technology center, customer service center, logistics center and financial center and other departments around 300 employees, to be admitted to jobs in the United States line vice president, Peng Liang of spokesman of news of January 28th "integration, Gome online and Bowser’s very smooth, there are two platforms not coincide in the post integration situation, so there is the optimization space."

obviously the United States online layoffs this is not a contraction
