Wells Fargo is cutting jobs across the nation and some of those jobs are in the Des Moines metro.

Wells Fargo spokesperson Angie Kaipust says nationally, 2,323 jobs are being cut and 87 of those jobs are in West Des Moines. The positions are part of Wells Fargo Home Mortgage.

Kaipust says a decline in demand for home mortgage refinancing led to the elimination of the jobs.

Those affected were told Wednesday. They’ve been given 60 days notice.

In July, 58 West Des Moines Wells Fargo positions were cut.
