DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - About 80 Des Moines-area workers will lose jobs as part of Wells Fargo's latest round of layoffs.
The Des Moines Register says (http://dmreg.co/OFTugU ) Wells Fargo announced Wednesday that it's laying off 700 employees nationwide.
Wells Mortgage spokeswoman Angela Kaipust says a drop in mortgage originations is causing the layoffs.
The bank is the largest employer in the Des Moines area, with more than 13,000 employees.
