Tech companies will be slashing more jobs this year than they did last year, according to a report by Challenger, Gray & Christmas.
During the first half of the year, tech employers said they would be cutting 48,402 jobs compared with 28,883 jobs during the same time period last year, according to a mid-year report published Monday by the recruiting firm. That's a 68 percent increase from a year ago. And that doesn't even include Microsoft's recent announcement to layoff 14 percent of its workforce.
