Marketing and economic experts weigh in on Meta, tech layoffs | KIRO 7

Meta announced Wednesday they would be laying off 11,000 employees as a response to spending issues from the pandemic. But Meta isn’t the only tech giant laying people off; both Twitter and Microsoft have also let go of employees in recent weeks. Even Amazon is currently under a hiring freeze due to concern about the future of the economy. Jeff Shulman, professor of marketing at the UW, is quoted.
