Netflix Lays Off 150 "Workers"

Well I assume they're the least productive workers.

I also assume that SJWs were heavily in the mix. More on that in a bit.

Netflix on Tuesday announced it was cutting 150 jobs amid a slowdown in revenue and a decline in subscribers that has shaken the entertainment industry.

The company did not say what departments would be affected by the cuts, though most of the job losses are in the U.S.

"As we explained on earnings, our slowing revenue growth means we are also having to slow our cost growth as a company," a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement. "So sadly, we are letting around 150 employees go today, mostly U.S.-based. These changes are primarily driven by business needs rather than individual performance, which makes them especially tough as none of us want to say goodbye to such great colleagues. We're working hard to support them through this very difficult transition."

The announcement comes after Netflix reported a loss of 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter for the first time in more than a decade. The Los Gatos, Calif.-based streaming service expects to lose 2 million more subscribers this quarter. Following its earnings report, the company's stock declined 35.1% to $226.19 on April 20, its biggest one-day drop since 2004.

So why do I say that SJWs are overrepresented in the pool of laid-off workers?

Well, it's not just that Wokeness is a luxury good that always loses money and can only be supported by actual profit-making endeavors. And that when you lose money -- as Netflix is doing -- you cut back on your money-losers.

And it's not just about this memo to the entire staff Netflix just published, though that is a signal that Netflix understands that if they stay woke they'll go broke.

In the memo's section on "Artistic Expression," Netflix told its woke employees if that if they have a problem with revenue generating content like Dave Chappelle, they are cordiality invited to seek opportunities elsewhere. In so many words, of course:

Not everyone will like--or agree with--everything on our service. While every title is different, we approach them based on the same set of principles: we support the artistic expression of the creators we choose to work with; we program for a diversity of audiences and tastes; and we let viewers decide what's appropriate for them, versus having Netflix censor specific artists or voices.

As employees we support the principle that Netflix offers a diversity of stories, even if we find some titles counter to our own personal values. Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful. If you'd find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you.

No, the reason I think Netflix is probably going to be laying off its Woke employees is because they already had a round of layoffs - -in their blogger "fandom"/marketing property Tudum -- and they laid off "journalists" there.

Who seem like wokies to my mind.

Netflix's blog Tudum, an onomatopoeia meant to resemble the sound made when the app starts...

That's stupid.

... is now sounding more like ta-"doom"...

Also stupid. Don't make jokes at a time like this; you're not any good at it.

...after the streaming giant suddenly laid off its blog staff Thursday afternoon.

The blog had hired industry writers, some of whom had come from sites like G/Os own A.V. Club and Jezebel, to write about Netflix programming, including interviews with showmakers and other rundowns of the latest content coming to the platform.

The AV Club and Jezebel?!

WOKE.

According to multiple tweets, the layoffs came in late afternoon on Thursday, and many were reportedly blindsided by the news. Now-former writers took to Twitter after the layoffs to announce they were open for work. Several expressed feelings of having the rug pulled out from under them.

Aggressively courting journalists (esp POC). Throwing money at us. Telling us this is gonna be different and stable. We'll be set up for success. Then months later pulling the rug out from underneath us. I should've known better than to trust anything with "doom" in its name
.
So they "threw money" at "journalists," "especially POC."

Again, this all seems like Woke Virtue Signaling. Not hiring with the intention of actually making some profit for the business, but just to hire SJWs.

Via Clownfish, who point out that it's pretty standard that Last In is also First Out.

Here's another reason to suspect that Netflix will be shedding Woke Staff and woke producers in the upcoming months:

They have been spending money like a drunken maniac (not a drunken sailor, but a drunken maniac) for years to just fill their library with quantity. When they lost popular stuff like Friends and The Office, they decided to just spend literally billions on whatever.

I've heard something "Netflix executives don't say 'no.'" No matter what you pitch them -- especially if it's woke -- they just say "yes" and throw millions at you.


So they have filled their library with quantity and quantity and quantity. And this quantity is almost all Woke Shit.

And no one likes it.

And people are looking at the $16 per month they're paying to see this absolute dreck woke garbage and deciding to cancel.

So Netflix is going to be severely restricting the number of producers who have greenlight power, and they're going to start, get this, examining the projects pitched to them for actual audience interest instead of just Woke Diversity Points.

And so that means that a lot of Wokies who have just been shepherding Woke bomb after woke bomb are probably going to be invited to seek opportunities elsewhere.

Woke garbage is a luxury good. (Well, really a luxury bad.)

The fat times are over. The lean times are here.

It's time for a visit from the man from Mitch & Murray.

40 Have gone through multiple layoffs during the period of time I was a factory worker, well, all I can say is, "suck it up, buttercup."

The "waah, they pulled the rug out from under me" crap just infuriates me to no end. Try having a family to support then finding out, "sorry, the work isn't there" and then trying to make ends meet on unemployment while looking for another job.

I have no sympathy for these entitled little whiny weenies.

I paid for one month of 4k Netflix in December, they keep emailing me to come back. I may write them and explain I won't give money to Woke Corp, am looking (like half of America) for MAGA Corp. .. maybe that would get through to them? If 5 million sent that kind of email?

Posted by: Puddleglum at May 17, 2022 06:31 PM (sAmhv)

82 Let me translate the layoffs for you. FIRST, remember that many companies were originally setting themselves up for survival on the situation where capitalism was going to be shit-canned in favor of socialist/corporate government grants; ie, "profit" was irrelevant, rather adherence to the narrative pushed by the elites. SECOND since we ain't gonna give up capitalism that easily, companies that went all-out #woke were finding they were getting slammed in virtually every venue and demographic. THIRD, the path to the Great Reset looks like it won't happen anytime soon, so competitors like Trump's TMTG (through acquisition company DWAC) and Daily Wire's 100 million dollar investment into non-#woke programming streaming looked like major competition...ergo FOUR: gotta return back to basics and make a goddamn profit to survive.

102 Netflix like other companies like it are run by 50 year old dudes. But social media directors are 24 year old women who majored in a “studies” program. And those 25 year olds convince the 50 year olds that everyone on Twatter them and everyone on Twiatter represents their customers. And the dumb 50 year old buys it and caves to the mob’s demand.

Netflix is talking about releasing Knives Out 2 (which they produced) exclusively to theaters for 45 days upon release.

They paid Rian Johnson $400 million just for the rights to the franchise, plus they made the second movie, and they don't think the streaming numbers will justify the cost.

They're becoming just another studio.

What great freedom in a film to be able to just walk out of the frame and not be seen again. Baldwin doesn*t walk completely out of frame, but he leaves the scene of his action. Duvall just walks right out of the film, on the audience’s left. The only other similar move I remember is Clint walks out of the frame, again on the audience left, at the end of The Mule. Back in the answering machine days, I used to use Baldwin*s 1st Prize sequence as my message.

That's obviously true, but they're somehow separate entities now. Netflix DVD is actually DVD.com, or something, and its budget is separate from the streamer. There are a variety of reasons for their selection to be getting worse, one of which is distributors simply not pressing new copies of older titles. It's a dying business.

So earlier, Chuck Schumer declined to go on Tucker's show tonight to discuss a letter he sent to Fox complaining about Tucker's "promoting the racist, dangerous, 'Replacement Theory.'"

Now, the latest:

@SenSchumer
Tucker Carlson and Fox News promote dangerous, racist, white supremacist lies and conspiracy theories. That's cowardly. Amplifying racist lies and propaganda is simply not debatable. It should have no place in America.

195 Baldwin*s Glengary scene, and Duvall*s scene in Apocalypse Now, are the two best one off scenes that I can think of.

Baldwin was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for that, and that was the only scene he appeared in in the movie.

And the scene wasn't even in the original play - David Mamet wrote it for the movie, because the movie needed to be longer than the play.

That's 1333 subscribers per terminated "worker".

A quick search says the standard subscription plan is $15.99 per month. If thats the average, then each terminated "worker" was worth around $255k per year.

If my math is correct, which is only 50/50.

It's not a lie or a conspiracy theory that the globalist left wants to flood America with third-worlders and force us to support them, in the name of "social justice."

Joe Biden admitted as much publicly a few years ago, when he talked in front of cameras about how he wants an "unending" stream of immigrants coming across the southern border, and how he can't wait until whites are a minority in their own country.

I don't just believe they always green-lighted naturally woke shit.

I think they often told creators that if they wanted their projects green-lighted, it better contain a certain level of woke shit.

I can't tell you how many Netflix series or movies I've watched that just contain a gratuitous faggot or some feminist tertiary character.

So I either must believe that every creator of anime, Korean drama, spy thriller, or action adventure has a preternatural desire to sprinkle their work with gratuitous faggotry, or I believe those controlling the purse strings call the shots.

I know which I believe of those two options.

241 PUBLISHED: May 17, 2022 at 4:53 a.m. | UPDATED: May 17, 2022 at 7:37 a.m.
LONDON (AP) -- Tesla CEO Elon Musk says his deal to buy Twitter can't move forward unless the company shows public proof that less than 5% of the accounts on the social media platform are fake or spam.

Musk made the comment in a reply to another user on Twitter early Tuesday. He spent much of the previous day in a back-and-forth with Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal, who posted a series of tweets explaining his company's effort to fight bots and how it has consistently estimated that less than 5% of Twitter accounts are fake.

In his tweet Tuesday, Musk said that "20% fake/spam accounts, while 4 times what Twitter claims, could be much higher. My offer was based on Twitter's SEC filings being accurate."

He added: "Yesterday, Twitter's CEO publicly refused to show proof of 5%. This deal cannot move forward until he does."

Twitter declined to comment.

289 Netflix got fucked in a margin squeeze effectively. As long as their stock was going up they could leverage that for cash loans to fund snapping up physical studios such as the largest one in New Mexico and green lighting every single project that came along without regard if the content was shit or not. One step deeper the Netflix debacle is about Reed Hastings' hubris, he could not fail because he was a media genius and that directly feed him into thinking he was a genius about what we all needed: a woke social order. This lead directly to him stocking up on pink haired man girls like he stocked up shitty content; whores have better standards. And then the wheels came off the bus: Biden fucked Hastings in the ass when he printed all that money which in turn drove up interest rates which fucked tech stocks right in the ass plus they ran out subscribers. And down came the stock and down came the empire leaving sad pink haired man girls living in a tent ghetto in LA. Prove me wrong.

The Bonham ISD had deceptive ads out claiming it would not increase the tax rate, they said nothing about taxes going up due to increased appraisals and they would get a huge chunk of that money if the bond passed.


Nowhere did they say anything about the extra taxable properties that are coming into the tax revenue stream that would have covered over half of this bond without a vote. They just ran deceptive ads.

“Russia is preparing for a long-term military operation,” Reznikov told EU defence ministers and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

“The war is entering a protracted phase,” he added in the speech, the text of which was published on his Facebook page.

According to Reznikov, Russian troops are currently building fortifications in the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions in order to “move to defence if necessary”.

This tells me that they are not hiring at the pace they used to and are looking to find efficiencies by not backfilling employees who leave (depending on the role). It could also mean that additional layoffs are coming as the determine where they can run leaner than they are currently...
