    The Google parent company "Alphabet" wants to cut thousands of jobs worldwide. After Microsoft, Amazon and Meta, it is the fourth tech giant with such an announcement.

As the next heavyweight in the tech industry, Google's parent company "Alphabet" wants to cut thousands of jobs. Around 12,000 jobs are to be lost worldwide, as company boss Sundar Pichai wrote in an email to employees published on Friday.

This corresponds to around six percent of the workforce. Pichai indicated that areas outside the core business will therefore be more affected: the workforce should be aligned with the group's central priorities.

Just this week, Microsoft announced that it would cut 10,000 jobs. Before that, Amazon announced that it would cut 18,000 jobs and the Facebook group Meta of 11,000 jobs.

With the booming business in the corona pandemic, the tech companies had increased their number of employees, in some cases significantly. Recently, however, business development has slowed down, among other things due to concerns about the economy and high inflation. (dpa/ari)
