DENVER (AP) - CenturyLink has laid off about 150 workers in Colorado as part of a company-wide effort to manage expenses.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1fHmgKC ) that the Monroe, Louisiana-based telecom company confirmed Wednesday that the cuts are part of 1,000 layoffs across the company. The 150 workers in Colorado represent about 2.5 percent of the company’s workforce in the state.

Despite the layoffs, CenturyLink has more than 40 Colorado job openings posted on its website.

The state houses the largest number of CenturyLink employees in one state due to a 2011 acquisition of Denver’s Qwest for $24 billion. Even after the cuts there are about 5,000 employees in Colorado.
