PAETEC: Consolidation Has Consequences

While the facts trickle in and things look far from certain where Rochester’s Midtown PAETEC office project is concerned, its worth noting that consolidation and acquisition has consequences for employees of all companies involved.

To whit: PAETEC’s Palm Harbor, FL offices: after PAETEC purchased Cavalier Phone, they announced plans to layoff 71 workers there and close the offices.
PAETEC to Lay Off 71 Workers –

Beginning next month, telecommunications provider PAETEC will lay off 71 workers at the company’s Palm Harbor location, according to a notice filed by the company with the state.

A company spokesperson says the move is a result of restructuring after PAETEC’s 2010 purchase of Cavalier Telephone.
