Facebook’s parent company Meta Platforms cut plans to hire engineers by at least 30% Thursday as founder Mark Zuckerberg warned employees of an economic downturn.

“If I had to bet, I’d say that this might be one of the worst downturns that we’ve seen in recent history,” Zuckerberg told his staff during a weekly session, the audio of which was obtained by Reuters. Meta reportedly planned to hire roughly 10,000 new engineers throughout the year, but has cut this expectation down to 6,000-7,000, Zuckerberg announced in the audio.

The article goes on to state the following:

The company will be leaving several positions unfilled and will be “turning up the heat” on performance management in an attempt to get rid of staffers unable to meet goals, Reuters continued. “Realistically, there are probably a bunch of people at the company who shouldn’t be here,” Zuckerberg continued, the outlet reported.


Zuckerberg said, “Part of my hope by raising expectations and having more aggressive goals, and just kind of turning up the heat a little bit, is that I think some of you might decide that this place isn’t for you, and that self-selection is OK with me.”

Chief Product Officer Chris Cox agreed with Zuckerberg, according to Reuters. He wrote in a memo, “I have to underscore that we are in serious times here and the headwinds are fierce. We need to execute flawlessly in an environment of slower growth, where teams should not expect vast influxes of new engineers and budgets.”

Reuters tweeted Friday, “Facebook slashes hiring plans as CEO Mark Zuckerberg warns employees to brace for a deep economic downturn.”

  1. All part of the leftist agenda!! To destroy, not only America, but the entire globe!! Sad!! It doesn’t have to be this way. Stand strong!! Get knocked down eight times, get up nine!!

  2. Finally a proof that is indisputable now arise and wake up America
    When Biden’s failures effect the giants ability to hire and the giant has to fire (HELLO)
    Jesus help us

  3. He spent millions rigging the election so this shit could happen. He doesn’t care about people, he has so much money a recession won’t hurt him a bit. The rest of us are screwed. Alien looking piece of shit.

  4. When it starts at the top the only way for it to go is downhill and we will see layoffs in all sectors of employment.

  5. You mean the leftist loony Zuckerberg is not parroting Magoos great economy projections. Telling his help to prepare for the rough ride and that jobs are on the line. Bet you they could use a mean tweet about now.

  6. Awww, poor baby!
    I don’t like to see anyone lose their job, but I definitely don’t feel sorry for Meta/Facebook as a corporation. A true good CEO would take a hit himself to help is employees, but Mark Psaki/Jen Zuckerberg will never do that.
    Wonder how he/she feels about helping rig the elections now!

  7. Fools and their money! by chumming up with the lying elite , not realizing their being played, the elite continues to lie, cheat, steel, pay off idiots to damage and destroy towns across the country, to bring down and ruin our entire country, while quietly building their million dollar underground bunkers, and baiting the young money punks into thinking they will all be excepted and part of the wonderful plan, until the doors are suddenly closed in their faces at the last min.. fools! They picked the wrong side and will be forced to be screwed like the rest of us. All that money still can’t buy brain cells.

  8. Hahahaha! The person who helped fund the cheating for Biden to be the WH occupant is now facing hardship with an artificial intelligent company he is trying to develop. This just makes my day!
