I am looking for open news dataset related to downsizing and employee layoff.

I have looked up Reuters and BBC News datasets but their categories are quite broad. Can anyone please suggest any resources for the same. I am trying to scrape various news sites but this will take a lot of time to get a good amount of data.

    That looks like 4 separate data requests in one question, of which the last one (Financial Result *) is extremely broad. Please limit your question(s) to one specific data set, give much more information than *related to. Read this
