Irish workers in Meta will have to wait until tomorrow, to hear whether or not they’ll be impacted by planned job losses.

The firm, which owns Facebook and Instagram, announced plans to slash its global workforce by 10,000 by the end of May.

It comes just four months after the company laid off 13% of its staff, including over 300 Irish employees.

Tomorrow Morning

Lorcan says Meta has about 2,600 direct employees in Dublin, as well as about 6,000 support operations and contract staff.
