Wall Street Journal may shed 50 jobs
New York's Wall Street Journal will hand out pink slips to an uncertain number of staff members next week, potentially around 50, numerous sources said.
The newspaper reported the rumor concerning job cuts included
parallel cuts at Dow Jones Newswires and the possibility the Journal could close one or more bureaus.
Everyone's under this haze of anxiety, one staff member said.
