Sad News: 85% Of Nigerians Working At Microsoft Have Lost Their Jobs.

Earlier this month, I reported that 7800 Microsoft employees lost their jobs due to Microsoft and Nokia’s bad business.  However, the number has even affected Nigerians working for the company.  Punch reports that 34 out of the 40 employees working in Microsoft’s Mobile Division Nigeria lost their jobs on Thursday, just after the launch of the Windows 10.

85% Of Nigerians Working At Microsoft Have Lost Their Jobs.

My heart goes out to everyone involved.
