Overall, Google’s parent company wants to reduce the total number of employees by 6 percent.

This will be the first time in the history of Alphabet that such a large number of employees will be laid off simultaneously.

Due to the uncertain economic situation, Alphabet will lay off employees from various sectors around the world.

It is not yet clear which sectors of the company will be most affected by this decision.

Google’s statement came after several technology companies; including Microsoft, Amazon, Meta, and Twitter, lay off large numbers of employees in recent months.
