Meta has announced that it plans to lay off an additional 10,000 workers, in addition to the initially planned cuts of 11,000 jobs.

In response to the announcement, shares saw upward price action:

The company claims that the layoffs are due to increasing efficiency at the company, as Meta moves to drastically overhaul its focus and revenue models.

Tech Estate provided details on the first round of cuts:

Mark Zuckerberg states, via The Associated Press:

“This will be tough and there’s no way around that,” said CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

The Epoch Times writes:

Roughly 128,000 technology industry employees from 483 companies have been laid off since the start of the year, according to the industry employment tracking website Layoffs.Fyi.

At the current pace of around 51,200 job losses per month, about 614,000 tech employees could lose their current jobs through the end of the year.

That would represent around a 280 percent increase from 2022, when 160,997 people got pink slips, according to Layoffs.Fyi.
