Try and make sense of this: The banking industry earned a record $40 billion in the first three months of 2012, meanwhile banks are cutting thousands of jobs.


Why are banks laying off workers while pocketing more money than ever?

More money, fewer jobs.

JPMorgan Chase , Wells Fargo andBank of America each announced job cuts this week. BofA said it was slashing 209 jobs, Wells is cutting 126 mortgage jobs in St. Louis as part of a 763-job reduction nationwide and JPM has started cutting hundreds across the country as part of a 15,000 job reduction.
