Macy’s to Cut 3,900 Jobs
In an effort to reduce costs, Macy’s has announced it is reducing its workforce 3% by cutting 3,900 corporate jobs, according to a report from CNBC.
The department store chain said it expects to save about $365 million through the layoffs in fiscal 2020. It said it will save roughly $630 million on an annualized basis.
