They say one picture tells a thousand words. Take a look a the photo below from the MRT Corp’s Facebook page yeah.

I quickly checked and according to statista (click here for source) Meta has over 86,000 employees as at December 2022. When we use this as calculation, it meant that around 11-12 pct of the current employees would cease to be employees of Meta in a few months time.
