HALLIBURTON CUTS 5,000 JOBS
Halliburton Co., which provides well-drilling services for oil companies, is cutting 5,000 more jobs as the industry continues to struggle with slumping oil prices.
A company spokeswoman said Thursday that the latest cuts will amount to about 8 percent of the Houston-based company's global workforce.
