Tech companies cut jobs last year as massive demand quickly faded during the pandemic, and layoffs continued this year at companies looking to control costs to weather the economic downturn.

In recent weeks, Google parent Alphabet said it would cut 12,000 jobs, while Microsoft said it would cut 10,000. Amazon’s layoffs will affect more than 18,000 positions.

Other tech companies such as Facebook parent company Meta and Elon Musk’s Twitter laid off thousands late last year.
