    Microsoft, Amazon, Salesforce and Meta/Facebook hired many thousands of workers – too many – during the COVID pandemic. Now, amid fears of a recession in 2023, those companies are laying off many thousands of workers. Microsoft's job cuts affect 5% of its workforce.

    Microsoft is laying off 10,000 employees

    George and Ruth Culver, their son Craig and his ex-wife Lea opened their first restaurant in 1984 in Sauk City, Wisconsin. There are now 900 Culver's restaurants in 26 states – and many customers are outraged that the chain has replaced Pepsi products with Coca-Cola products. Really? Is there that big a difference between Coke and Pepsi?

    Midwest burger chain Culver's is switching from Pepsi to Coca-Cola and fans are livid: 'Ruined my entire day'

    Thousands of Google employees, many of whom had tenure or had recently been promoted, were surprised to discover they'd been fired and no longer had access to company properties. They're wondering what criteria were used to determine whose jobs were cut. Management has told them to save their questions for a town hall next week.

    Google is cutting 12,000 jobs, adding to a series of Big Tech layoffs in January

    Worldwide in 2022, Google generated $168 billion in revenue from digital advertising. Instagram generated $78 billion, Facebook $58 billion and Amazon $44 billion. It seems to me that Google has a dominance and not a monopoly – but the Department of Justice disagrees.

    Justice Department files antitrust lawsuit against Google over digital advertising
    ABC News, Jan 24 2023 12:57 PM

    The Justice Department and eight states filed a historic antitrust lawsuit today targeting Google over what they allege is the Big Tech giant's monopoly over the online advertising market. "Monopolies threaten the free and fair markets on which our economy is based," Attorney General Merrick Garland said at a press conference. "They stifle innovation, they hurt workers and producers and they increase costs for consumers." The lawsuit, filed in the Eastern District of Virginia, seeks to "halt Google's anticompetitive scheme, unwind Google's monopolistic grip on the market and restore competition to digital advertising."

    Walmart has more than 11,000 stores across 25 different countries. Walmart has 1,700,000 employees in the United States and 2,300,000 worldwide. Sales in 2022 topped five hundred billion dollars. The company can easily afford this hike in its minimum wage.

    Speaking this morning with Fox Business News' Maria Bartiromo, Wall Street economist Nancy Lazar said the United States is seeing a "very desynchronized economy." She predicts a recession in the second half of 2023 as lag effects from the Federal Reserve’s rate hikes take hold. And then there's the stock market.....

    Investors say they're bracing for the stock market to hit new lows this year amid weak corporate earnings

    Hayes International in Wesley Chapel, Florida, works with retail, industrial, distribution and manufacturing companies to help prevent "inventory shrinkage" – a euphemism for "shoplifting." The company estimates shoplifters steal 15 to 20 billion dollars' worth of merchandise every year in the United States.

    A Walgreens store in North Carolina bans purses and bags to prevent shoplifting. Will others follow?

    The United States added a record 6,700,000 jobs in 2021. Last year saw the second-highest number of jobs added: 4,500,000. This year is getting off to a good start.

    U.S. added 517,000 jobs in January as employers drove unexpected hiring surge
    Monthly job gains far outpaced the 187,000 forecast as the unemployment rate fell to a historic low of 3.4%, showing the labor market remains strong despite the Fed’s continued interest rate increases.
