Western Digital Corp. is quietly cutting 251 employees statewide — including more than 100 at its San Jose headquarters — as part of a restructuring. The computer storage maker informed state employment and local elected officials of the layoffs Thursday. The cuts affect workers at company locations in San Jose, Milpitas and Irvine. WDC made the cuts as part of an effort to reduce operating costs in response to "challenging" economic conditions, company spokeswoman Robin Schultz said in an emailed statement.
