Employees at Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s Internet start-up are looking for new jobs in anticipation that it’s about to fold, The Post has learned.
Well-placed sources said several staffers, including founding members, have been interviewing for positions at other tech firms since Booker’s company, Waywire, shuttered its lower Manhattan offices and laid off eight people earlier this year.
Some of the job-seekers have been telling people that it’s “just a matter of time” before the video-sharing Web site shuts down, sources said.
Waywire will likely remain in business only until after Booker’s widely anticipated election to the US Senate so that he doesn’t look bad before the voters, sources said. . .
