Mortgage layoffs in America
Last week, Wells Fargo laid off, which Wells Fargo claims is less than one percent of their workforce and was mostly interim workers to help with volume.
Now, Bank of America is laying off mortgage workers from roughly 100 of their small loan fulfillment centers, half of all of its fulfillment centers. According to the L.A. Times, because Bank of America expects its mortgage lending to drop about 25% this year over last, more layoffs are on the way.
We have reported that half of the mortgage employees in America have gotten the axe over the last five years, and the layoffs continue.
Some claim the layoffs are only the interim workers, other analysts note that although the layoffs are accelerating, they are not new.
