Microsoft Lays Off 5%

Microsoft laying off 5,000 of its 94,000 employees. Approximately two-thirds of MSFT's workforce is in Seattle -- I haven't seen anyone state if all the lay-offs will be there.

According to the news, actually most of the employees layed off are those working with H1B visas, so it will be a hard time for those professional holding H1B's, where most of them are from asian countries like India, China, Singapore.. etc.
