Although Yahoo dumped more than 2,000 workers in three rounds of layoffs earlier this year, company officials said that it had begun "selectively" hiring again. An increased budget line of $75 million is mostly earmarked for the acquisition of new sales people and technical staffers.

MarketWatch apparently took this to refer to the "team leaders and project managers" who were among the departed.
