Leading Online service AOL has cut 300 jobs (about 5% of its workforce) as it streamlines itself. Most layoffs were in its US offices in California and Virginia. Steve Case, AOL's much maligned CEO, reportedly wrote to the axed staff, describing what he termed the more "painful aspects" of change that will eventually see the company consolidate into three divisions.
AOL denied any jobs would be lost in the UK and US representatives claim between 1,000 and 1,500 new jobs will be formed by next summer. AOL currently claims to have 7 million members worldwide and added nearly 3,000 jobs through 1996 to cope.
