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.
Let me reinstate what I said earlier:
One thing is for sure, Microsoft, Apple, Google, and other tech giants will continue to make money one way or the other. They don’t care if people argue which product is better as long as people keep buying them and lining their pockets. But, when workers (no matter what company) are being laid off (especially during these economic downtime) no one wins.
