MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Another potential round of layoffs is looming over one of the Twin Cities’ largest employers.

Boston Scientific says it plans to let about 1,500 workers go over the next two years.

The company did not specify how many cuts were planned for Minnesota, where there are 5,000 employees.

This latest round of cuts comes just a few years after the heart device maker eliminated 1,000 jobs in order to reduce costs due to lagging sales.
