Apple has been laying off some of its newly-hired retail employees, reports MacRumors.One report says that all employees at a United Kingdom store with less than six months of experience were laid off.

Additionally, we can confirm that a Washington, DC-area Apple Store has cut employee hours and is in the middle of a hiring freeze.

We’re puzzled by this as Apple’s business has proven especially strong lately.
