Wal-mart (NYSE: WMT) said to cut 7,000 U.S. store back-office positions, according to the WSJ.
UPDATE - Cuts come as the retail giant is making changes to optimize its stores.
Positions will be cut in accounting and invoicing. Wal-mart would rather keep employees that interact more with customers, not those in the backroom.
Much of the work being cut -- including claims processing, cash flow management, and more -- will be centralized moving forward.
