Warner Bros. To Lay Off 1,000 Employees?

It might be a bad day for Warner Bros. employees as there are talks that they could be laying off around 1,000 people on Friday due to the writers strike.

A Warner Bros. spokesperson declined to say when and how many people would be laid off.

"These WARN notices were sent because, in certain circumstances, federal and California law can require employers to give notice of staffing changes," Warners spokeswoman Stacey Hoppe said. "Due to the ongoing WGA work stoppage, some studio divisions will have to lay off employees. We regret the impact this will have on our employees, and we hope to bring them back to work once the WGA strike ends."

Everyone must be really annoyed from this writer’s strike. I know as an avid TV watcher I’m pretty annoyed.
