Jobs cuts looming at Wal-Mart. Sources say the world's largest retailer will announce as early as Friday that it'll lay off hundreds of people at its Arkansas headquarters. Workers afraid of losing their jobs have been flooding recruiting firms with resumes. Wal-Mart would not comment. The cuts - expected to be fewer than 500 - are a small percentage of its staff of 18,000. But it's part of CEO Doug McMillon's drive to cut costs. Wal-Mart has been increasing wages for half- a million workers at its stores. Those costs, combined with a stronger dollar, hurt its quarterly profit and forced the company to sharply cut its earnings forecast for the year. Wal-Mart is also spending more on training in its bid to improve customer service. Investors sent Wal-Mart shares lower at the start of trading. The stock has fallen nearly 25 percent this year, vastly underperforming that of its rivals, Amazon and Target.
250,000 total is the goal by 2020?
Perhaps the most sensational portion of the document comes from the statement that Special Operations wants to “Operationalize the CONUS base“, meaning Continental United States. General Cleveland’s strategy is to utilize civilian assets to support deployed soldiers. The plan seeks to utilize non-governmental agencies, think tanks, academia, and other U.S. government agencies to support Special Operations goal of containing the threat of VEO’s (Violent Extremist Organizations), non-state actors, and other irregular threats.
