TECH CRUNCH - YouTube is set to eliminate 100 employees as part of Google's ongoing layoffs, following the dismissal of over 1,000 workers in various divisions last week. The job cuts at YouTube are attributed to restructuring changes in its creator management and operations teams. Affected employees can apply for other positions within YouTube, but there is no guarantee of retention. The layoffs are part of Google's efforts to become more efficient and align resources with its major product priorities. The tech industry has witnessed several companies, including Discord, Twitch, and Instagram, facing job reductions in the early weeks of the year.
