by Tia StaffAfter struggling to increase it’s revenue, AOL/Patch finally began firing stafferes. Friday’s firings were said to be 40% of it’s staff with a whopping 350 pink slips distributed.

Insiders say that simlutaneously, while terminations were occurring, the lucky remaining 60% of staffers were receiving good news that their jobs were secure for now. Then of course, remote workers had to call in to learn of their fate, and yes they were provided with two separate dial-in numbers.

No one is secure yet. The AP is reporting a possible 150 more job cuts on the horizon.

Thank you, TiA
