Continued Layoff Rumors From Citigroup

We commented on this a while ago, but we got an email earlier today that said Citigroup is going to go ahead and lay off as many as 5-10% of their workforce. This is less than the 45,000 workers we heard about during the first wave of rumors, but that still puts it in the neighborhood of 30,000 people.

Then this small item hit the wires this afternoon.

Request to our readers: does anyone else have any info, especially related to timing? Will these layoffs becoming this month or after the new year? Are the rumored numbers correct? And are any other banks considering similar moves? It would stand to reason, if Citi is cutting that much of it’s workforce, other banks must be feeling similar pressure. Citi is the 800 pound gorilla, after all. We promise to keep you anonymous if you do send in a tip we can share.

Ufa. Ask and you receive. No sooner did this post go up then we got a couple of emails about Washington Mutual. A little Googling and sure enough, this turned up, dated yesterday and just this afternoon:
Washington Mutual Announces Major Layoffs and Closings and
Washington Mutual shares dive on layoffs, stock offering

Lookout all financial workers…

Aaaand… a flood of emails from this Techcrunch post. Ok, it’s only 12 people, but it looks like the financial contagion is spreading even to financial journalism circles.

    Every one on internet searches for very good content. Its very unfortunate with most of the websites published posts that are boring and out of context articles, just to show that new material is being published. Contrary to that immoral practice, this article is a very good-written article.
    Anyway, what do you think about make?
