AOL to Layoff 700 Workers
As first reported by the Washington Post, America Online is expected to eliminate more than 700 jobs from its workforce next month. The majority of the layoffs will occur at AOL's Dulles, Virginia headquarters where nearly 5,000 are presently employed. Analysts cite AOL's dwindling subscriber base; however, a company spokesperson refused to validate that assertion. Officially, AOL has no comment.
