Avon Products Inc. plans to lay off 600 customer service representatives nationwide, including 50 in Delaware, and send the work overseas, company officials said Thursday.
The cuts will mean 10 percent of Avon's work force of 500 at the wholesale distribution center in Newark will be laid off.
This story is a few days old now, but if I happen to run into an Avon exec in Brew Ha Ha I'm going to ask, "So who do expect to buy your products when the we get rid of the middle class once and for all?"
