Toshiba sheds 14,000-plus jobs

TOKYO -- Toshiba said Friday that it has cut 14,450 jobs worldwide, roughly 30% more than planned, as it struggles to get back on its feet following a damaging book-cooking scandal.

     The initial target was to reduce the number of workers worldwide by 10,840 from the level at the end of March 2015. Cuts in Japan totaled 8,430. Most of the 6,020 jobs slashed outside Japan were layoffs.
