BOSTON (CBS) – Bank of America Corp. on Monday confirmed it plans to reduce employment levels by about 30,000 over the next few years as it works to slash expenses and build up capital.

The company, which employed about 288,000 at the end of June, said it expects that attrition and the elimination of unfilled roles will be a big part of the anticipated decrease in jobs.
