Origin Energy slashes hundreds of jobs from Queensland
650 Origin Energy workers are out of a job today.
Origin made the cuts at their head office in Brisbane in an attempt to slash costs.
Job losses were announced alongside new business plans on Tuesday afternoon.
The company also sacked 800 workers in 2015 when gas and oil prices dived.
Late last year Origin announced they were hoping to cut costs by half a billion dollars over 18 months.
