Spencer Platt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — While the economy is said to have created nearly a quarter of a million jobs last month, jobs are being cut at Google.

The Wall Street Journal reports Google is cutting an additional 1,200 jobs in its Motorola division as the unprofitable cellphone maker continues to hemorrhage money.

Last summer, Google announced 4,000 Motorola job cuts.

Google bought Motorola to boost its mobile presence but it’s been losing market share to Apple and Samsung.
