Google Becomes The Latest Tech Company To Axe Thousands Of Jobs

Following on the heels of Microsoft, Google has announced via a blog post that was based on an email sent by CEO Sundar Pichai that the company will be slashing 12000 jobs:

Over the past two years we’ve seen periods of dramatic growth. To match and fuel that growth, we hired for a different economic reality than the one we face today.

The email also reads like Google is really trying hard not to be perceived as handling this the way that Elon Musk’s handling Twitter layoffs. But other than that, the email is a bit of a rallying cry to those who remain as I am sure that some of them will be heading to exits as well.

Expect more stories like this to come in the days and weeks ahead.
