Google to layoff 10,000 employees

We have reports buzzing around right now saying that Google has quietly laid off employees and up to 10,000 employees could be sacked in the next couple of months. The unknown fact is that hundreds of Google employees have been laid off ever since August 2008 and majority of them were recruiters for Google.

The laying offs were not reported to SEC since Google has found a way to go around the legal requirements. Nobody knows the actual number of employees that Google has but many said it should be around 30,000. However, Google is bloody slick. They sent reports to SEC saying that they only had 20,123 full time employees while the rest are all ‘part timers’.

To go around SEC legal requirements, Google move employees (those designated as ‘part timers’) from one job to another every few months to give SEC the impression that they were part timers or temporary employees.

Some of those ‘part timers’ have worked their butts off for Google for more than 5 years and yet Google claims that they’re just temporary workers!? WTF!?
