CNNMoney: Today, Yahoo said it will lay off 2,000 employees, or approximately 14 percent of its total workforce. According to the company, the job cuts will save Yahoo $375 million per year. New CEO Scott Thompson called the cuts “an important next step toward a bold, new Yahoo — smaller, nimbler, more profitable and better equipped to innovate. Our goal is to get back to our core purpose — putting our users and advertisers first.”
Many observers believe that additional rounds of layoffs will follow after this one.
