Let us take into those big firms that have already cut jobs and those that will be doing soon in the coming days:


In India, across different states, Amazon is reportedly laying off employees across different businesses and functions including human resources, support functions and Amazon Web services (AWS). The Seattle-based technology giant is letting down around 500 employees in India, and the process continues. This is a portion of the extra layoffs that Amazon CEO Andy Jassy previously announced in late March of this year, which will affect about 9000 people worldwide.

Microsoft-owner GitHub

The top code-hosting platform for software development in the world has let go 85% of its Indian employees. 183 employees have been reportedly asked to leave out of 216 employees, including the entire engineering team responsible for building GitHub for the world. Microsoft’s acquisition of GitHub is around $7.5 billion since October 2018, the company has been focusing on India.

Intel will be cutting down its workforce to reduce costs. The chipmaker has not yet provided a specific figure but has stated that there would be general layoffs. The company cited its need to layoff is to accelerate its strategy in a challenging macro environment while still investing in areas core to its business, like its U.S.-based manufacturing operations for long-term growth. Through a variety of efforts, including certain labour cutbacks throughout the corporation for particular businesses and functions, they are concentrated on finding cost savings and efficiency benefits.
