Earlier this week Google
that they’re planning to cut back their gigantic, 10,000 strong contractor workforce. While not every single member of that 10 large workforce will be fired, Google is reportedly looking to downsize as best they can.
Make no mistake about it, Google is going to let some people go. But, according to Google co-founder Sergey Brin, they’re looking to convert as many as they can to regular employees. Though, details like this are vague at the moment.
But fret not; this has nothing to do with the economic crisis (or so they say). According to Google spokeswoman “We have 10,000, and we have had a plan in place for awhile to significantly reduce that number. This is something we've been thinking about for awhile--six or seven months. It predates the most acute phase of the (present economic) crisis.”
