Wal-Mart Slashes More Jobs at Headquarters
Wal-Mart cut more than 100 jobs at its Bentonville, Arkansas headquarters this week, in a new round of layoffs by the retailer. The latest cuts, first reported by The Wall Street Journal, follow the layoff of 450 workers at its home office in October. These cuts are separate from any occurring at the 100 or so Wal-Mart Express stores the retailer has closed. A spokesman for Wal-Mart said the cuts affected 1 percent to 3 percent of headquarters’ tech staff.
