Hundreds are getting laid off but hundreds are also hiring ! Check it out! (Isn't it tempting?)
John Muir Health, a two-hospital system in Walnut Creek and Concord, is selling its MuirLab clinical lab business to LabCorp. Terms were not disclosed, but the sale would result in 540 MuirLab jobs being eliminated, although roughly one in three of them may move over to LabCorp, also known as Laboratory Corporation of America (NYSE: LH). "We expect 150 (MuirLab staffers) to get job opportunities at LabCorp" and there may be others who find employment there, said Ben Drew, a John Muir Health spokesman.
Don't forget, hundreds of biopharma companies are hiring! (We know you can't resist.)
