WorldCom makes cuts

CLINTON — Rumors continued to swirl about the number of employees laid off by Worldcom Inc. Feb. 28th as the Mississippi Business Journal went to press.

At press time, e-mail to Worldcom had not been returned to the Mississippi Business Journal. A call to the Skytel public relations office in Jackson was directed to a Worldcom spokesperson in Washington, but, again, it had not been returned by MBJ’s deadline.

In the metro area, home to the telecommunications giant, affected workers at Worldcom’s corporate headquarters in Clinton and in its Skytel office in downtown Jackson were escorted out of their buildings, according to local news reports and unnamed employees.
