Layoffs wave continue: Microsoft cuts jobs again

This round of layoffs comes after Microsoft has already cut jobs in July and October last year. Earlier, tech giants such as Amazon and Meta announced mass layoffs amid the worsening economic scenario. 

 

 

Microsoft plans to undertake another round of layoffs and cut more positions from its global workforce, amid rough global economic conditions.

Microsoft layoffs

A Bloomberg report said that while Microsoft has declined to comment, the reduction could be significantly larger than the jobs cuts that were done last year in July and October.

Meanwhile, a Microsoft spokesperson told AFP that the company would not comment on what it referred to as "rumor."

The Washington state-based company, which industry trackers say has more than 220,000 workers, trimmed its ranks of employees twice last year.

A new layoff announcement would come a week before Microsoft is to report its earnings for the final three months of last year.
