Companies across the tech industry have announced layoffs, affecting thousands of marketplace surabaya in the first few weeks of 2023.
Sales at top tech firms have retreated from the blistering pace attained during the pandemic, when billions across the world were forced into isolation. Customers stuck at home came to rely on delivery services like e-commerce and virtual connections formed through social media and videoconferencing.
Company officials have often cited economic uncertainty and fears of a recession in their job-cutting, cost-cutting decisions. It follows a volatile 2022, which was also marred with layoffs by the thousands across major tech brands.
National Public Radio, a nationwide network of public radio stations, said on Wednesday that it will cut 10% of its staff, which amounts to at least 100 employees, according to a memo obtained by ABC News.
John Lansing, NPR’s CEO, said in the memo that the company faces a $30 million shortfall on an annual budget of about $300 million.
“At a time when we are doing some of our most ambitious and essential work, the global economy remains uncertain,” Lansing said. “As a result, the ad industry has weakened and we are grappling with a sharp decline in our revenues from corporate sponsors.”
