In the coming months, 3,000 workers will be laid off by telecom equipment maker ZTE due to authorization problems in the United States. The Chinese company is struggling to keep its business firm and will soon cut down on the amount of jobs available.

Despite being one of the largest telecommunications gear makers across the globe, ZTE will cut about 3,000 of its 6,000 international employees. This will represent a decrease of about 5 percent in its workforce. According to official sources in the company, overall 10 percent of ZTE's working personnel will be lost worldwide this year. In China, the job cut will affect 20 percent of the company's workforce.

ZTE is still giving a briefing about the cuts, statistics, and reasons, and will complete the entire process by the end of April this year, Reuters reported.

ZTE workers in China have spoken to the media about the sudden job cuts. One manager talked about being ordered to fire 10 percent of his staff by this month's end.

An anonymous manager of one of ZTE's branches told the Global Times that he was presented a list of the people who must be fired since they tried to seek jobs at other telecommunications companies such as Huawei. The telecom company has not released any statement about the report.
