Facebook Planning Mass Layoffs of 'Woke' Employees after Suffering 'Worst Downturn'
Mark Zuckerberg warns executives to prepare fire staff
Left-wing social media company Facebook, aka Meta, is planning mass layoffs of its "woke" employees.
The move comes after the company has suffered "one of the worst downturns" after a huge censorship campaign against conservatives.
After letting leftist "fact checkers" decide what is seen on the platform, or who sees it, users have been abandoning Facebook in droves as it becomes clear that it is just another propaganda wing of the Democratic Party.
In response to the company's downturn, Zuckerberg is laying the groundwork for mass layoffs at Meta.
Zuckerberg warned his company's managers to start identifying "woke" staff “who are unable to get on track” and add them to the list for termination.
As reported by Reuters on July 1, during a weekly employee question-and-answer session, Zuckerberg also delivered a message to Meta workers to reveal that the company is struggling.
Discussing the situation at Meta, Zuckerberg said, "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 put responsibility for layoffs squarely on employee performance.
“Realistically, there are probably a bunch of people at the company who shouldn’t be here,” Zuckerberg stated.
Zuckerberg continued, “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.”
In addition to potential future cuts of the existing workforce, Meta scaled back the hiring of new engineers in 2022 from 10,000 to between 6,000 and 7,000.
Other positions are also to be left vacant.
The Meta rebrand was supposed to be a glorious expansion of Facebook, taking it beyond being just a social media platform.
“We are at the beginning of the next chapter for the internet, and it’s the next chapter for our company too,” Zuckerberg boasted in October of 2021.
Zuckerberg claimed, “The next platform will be even more immersive — an embodied internet where you’re in the experience, not just looking at it.
"We call this the metaverse, and it will touch every product we build.”
There was a backlash against the actual limited performance of the “metaverse” as compared to the hype.
“Meta is beta,” observed Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers.
Whatever they call themselves, Facebook or Meta, the social media giant has suffered many setbacks recently.
Zuckerberg personally lost billions when Facebook announced in February 2022 that they had their first-ever quarter with a decrease in daily active users.
Also in February, a manager of community development at Meta, Jeren Miles, was filmed as part of a pedophile sting operation.
In March, SCOTUS Justice Clarence Thomas called for a review of the special legal protections Big Tech receives.
The right court case could end up removing the immunities for civil or criminal liability Facebook currently takes advantage of.
Even as Meta prepares for rough times, perhaps the last employees who need to worry about their jobs are Facebook’s infamous “fact checkers.”
Facebook’s own attorneys admitted these fact-checkers are going by opinions, not facts.
But still, Facebook uses them to censor any views which go against the Democrats' agenda.
It’s unfortunate some tech workers will soon be unemployed.
However, layoffs due to a decrease in users and influence are the direct result of Facebook’s woke bullying of the people.
Meta is in trouble, ultimately, because they do not function like a real social media platform; they act like a propaganda platform.
