GE Healthcare to layoff 2% of Wisconsin workforce

by

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - GE Healthcare said Friday it will cut two percent of its Wisconsin jobs.

The economy is being blamed. The Milwaukee-based maker of large medical equipment said it had to make, “tough decisions in the current economic climate.”

Up to 130 people could be laid off from GE Healthcare facilities in Milwaukee and Waukesha. But the firm would not go into details.

It said it was trying to minimize the impact by finding other jobs within General Electric for those on the list.

GE Healthcare employs around 6,500 people in Wisconsin.
