retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Bloomberg reports that Walmart "is trimming the workforce at its headquarters again, part of the retailer’s campaign to reduce expenses," with the move expected to affect just a few dozen employees.

The story notes that "Wal-Mart has been looking to slim down its operations as it boosts wages for employees and ramps up e-commerce spending to compete with Amazon.com Inc. Hundreds of positions were eliminated earlier this year."
