Pay By Touch, the biometrics firm run into the ground by cocaine addict and convicted felon John Rogers, is accelerating plans to lay off 49 employees. Originally scheduled for this week and next, the layoffs are happening early, a tipster tells us, so that Pay By Touch won't have to issue Friday's paychecks to the affected employees. An all-hands meeting is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. today.
