Factbox-Factbox companies are cutting jobs and freezing hiring in preparation for economic slowdown

(Reuters) – Tech companies, cryptocurrency exchanges and financial firms are cutting jobs and slowing hiring as global economic growth slows due to high interest rates, hyperinflation and Europe’s energy crisis.

In a sign of a grueling second half of the year, growth in the United States, the world’s largest economy, contracted for the second consecutive quarter, while business growth in the eurozone slowed sharply in June due to the rising cost of living.
