A Google engineer laid off after over 16 and a half years at the firm said the tech giant views staff as “100% disposable,” in a LinkedIn post.

Justin Moore, an engineering manager at Google, was one of the 12,000 people affected by Google’s layoff last week. Moore wrote that he found out he had been laid off via an automated account deactivation at 3:00 a.m.

He said he hadn’t received any other “information” or “communication” about being let go.  Even if he did receive communication, he is unable to access it because of the deactivation. 

“This also just drives home that work is not your life, and employers — especially big, faceless ones like Google — see you as 100% disposable,” Moore wrote in the post.

“Live life, not work.” 

Moore pointed out that his experience at Google had been “(largely) wonderful” and that he was proud of the work he had done around the world.

Moore started out as a senior software engineer at the firm in 2006 and progressed to the position of software engineering manager in 2019, according to his LinkedIn profile.

On Friday, Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google’s parent Alphabet, sent an email to staff saying it was laying off around 12,000 staff, roughly 6% of its global workforce. Pichai said he took “full responsibility for the decisions that led us here.” 

He added that the people being laid off “cut across Alphabet, product areas, functions, levels and regions.”

  • KB Homes, the largest home building in America, saw 68% of their new home contracts CANCELED last quarter. Every other home builder is facing the same thing. GM is in serious trouble as are all the car manufacturers and the dealerships. We are about to experience a time in this nation that none of us have witnessed before. Did you know that 23 foreign nations are dumping the dollar and creating their own financial systems? They know what’s about to happen but isn’t it funny that our government and media isn’t announcing it? They finally came out and told us that the Saudis, for the first time ever, will be accepting other forms than the U.S. petrol dollar to purchase their oil. This and the fact that all these nations are dumping the dollar spells total doom for the U.S. dollar. When this happens later this year you are going to see inflation like never before. You are going to see shortages like never before. And the sad thing is, it was all done on purpose. Wise old men once said that America would never be taken by force and that it would be destroyed from within. The rich and powerful globalists, like Soros, the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, and all the others have worked meticulously for decades to have everything in place so when 2030 hits, America and the world is theirs. We are the last stand. If America falls, the world falls.
    And all I can tell people, is you better start praying because the ONLY one who can stop this madness is the man upstairs. Put your faith back where it belongs because the world went downhill the minute you stopped.
