Microsoft Axes 2,100 Jobs

Microsoft has confirmed another 2,100 redundancies as part of a plan to cut 18,000 jobs, some 14% of its workforce. The software giant said 747 jobs will go in the Seattle area, with the rest spread across its global operations, BBC reported. Microsoft had already cut 13,000 jobs, with the bulk at the Nokia phone division bought by the US company. Microsoft, which has about 127,000 people on its payroll, will take a charge of between $1.1b and $1.6b for costs related to the cuts.
