Microsoft to cut up to 18,000 jobs

Microsoft said Thursday that it planned to eliminate up to 18,000 jobs over the next year in a shake-up intended to help the company move more quickly in the market. Of those cuts, at least 1,351 will come from the Puget Sound area, according to The Seattle Times. That’s about 3 percent of the approximately 43,000 employees Microsoft has in this area.
