Boston Scientific hands out pink slips

Look for Boston Scientific workers at the nearest job fair. The device maker's previously announced job cuts--some 2,300, according to company forecasts--have begun.

An estimated 500 to 600 will be laid off in Arden Hills, Minnesota; the company has another big operation in Maple Grove.
