Microsoft To Cut 14 Percent Of Its Workforce

Thursday, July 17, 2014

Microsoft’s new CEO says he will cut 14 percent of the company’s workforce over the next year, as he reshapes the software giant.

It’s by far the largest jobs cut in Microsoft’s history and comes a week after CEO Satya Nadella’s company-wide memo, which promised a shake up in Microsoft’s work culture and management.

Ina Fried, senior editor of Re/code, joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson with details.
