Microsoft lays off 2,100 employees as part of its planned 18,000 job cuts

Microsoft has confirmed it has laid off 2,100 of its workers today as part of its previously announced plans to cut 18,000 jobs at the company worldwide by the end of June 2015.

Microsoft first announced the work force reduction in July, and cut 13,000 employees at that time. Today's layoffs mean that the company still has another 2,900 employees that it plans to cut sometime in the next nine and a half months. Even with today's cuts, Microsoft still has approximately 112,900 team members employed in its locations worldwide.

What do you think about this second wave of layoffs at Microsoft?
