No Layoff for People Working Outside USA

The firm has added that the timing could be different for people who are working outside the USA and some cuts may not be happening until the end of this year.

However, in the field of the tech industry, the lower borrowing cost can boost investment still the industry has been hit distinctively hard.

Worldwide more than 1,70,000 employees lost their jobs since the beginning of the year who were part of bigger companies like Amazon and Google.
