Microsoft lays off over 5,000 people

looks like even Microsoft can't escape having to lay off workers in this economic condition

Out of the almost 100,000 employees they had to let 5,000 go. OMFG Microsoft is DOOMED LMFAO. All MS is doing, is eliminating jobs that arent neccessary.

never said they were doomed. just shows that even during these times, no company is untouched by what is going on.

Let's not let the the fact that trolls come here to cause trouble stop us from being able to discuss the news.

I have an idea, how about somebody finds out how many people Sony fired. With all the money they have been losing it's got to be more than Microsoft who actual made a profit.

Economy isn't getting better at all. Its actually getting worse. The unemployment percentages came out today for USA, and unemployment went up. Obama fails.
