The proposed merger of No.4 wireless carrier T-Mobile USA and MetroPCS (PCScleared a major hurdle earlier this week, but some troubling news accompanied the win: more than 100 T-Mobile employees are reportedly set to lose their jobs. The Seattle Times reports that more than 100 people in T-Mobile’s marketing group and across other departments will be laid off during “integration” meetings scheduled to take place on Thursday. T-Mobile employed approximately 36,000 people across the country in 2012. MetroPCS shareholders will convene on April 12th to vote on the merger, which is still being reviewed by regulators.
