Recently, there has been an unprecedented number of mass layoffs across the world, including in big tech companies like Twitter and Meta which also announced that they fired thousands of people in the past few weeks. This has affected many, including Indians who form a large chunk of the workforce in the US’ Silicon Valley.
Amid what many are referring to as the ‘layoff season’, Harsh Jain, co-founder of Dream Sports took to Twitter and offered Indian employees fired by the major tech firms to join his company especially those with Visa issues.
“With all the 2022 Tech layoffs (52,000+!) in the US, please spread the word to remind Indians to come back home (specially those with visa issues) to help Indian Tech realise our hyper-growth potential in the next decade!” Jain wrote in a tweet.
