Do we know if this wave of Fidelity layoffs is over?

Layoffs happing today

I guess they didn't get enough older workers to take the earlier retirement, so they got many of them in this second round. Fidelity is a very profitable company that is just kicking older workers to the street and throwing in a few younger ones too... read more
