This market resolves positively if Meta leadership announces layoffs of >=5% of workforce. Layoffs must be announced, but do not need to be carried out within this timeframe. If more than one layoff is announced such that each layoff is less than 5%, but together they comprise more than 5%, this DOES fulfill the condition.
Meta's future looks grim,
As layoffs start to skim.
Numbers dwindling, profits slim,
More layoffs seem quite prim.
This should be resolved as YES by now, right? The resolution criteria has been met. E.g., https://www.cbsnews.com/sanfrancisco/news/facebook-parent-meta-plans-to-lay-off-another-10000-employees/
@JacyAnthis exactly but the market maker bought no just a few hrs ago- idk if there's been a new announcement but the old announcement satisfied the criteria.
@firstuserhere I'm always unsure how much to invest in such markets because of the risk of incorrect resolution...
@TheSkeward so what's the deal here? Why not resolve?
@JacyAnthis This is not sufficient for resolution of the market.
"We will let recruiting team members know tomorrow whether they’re impacted. We expect to announce restructurings and layoffs in our tech groups in late April, and then our business groups in late May." [emp. mine]
This is a notification of a timeline for future layoffs announcements to come, not a layoff announcement in itself. The actual layoff announcements that happen prior to 4/30 may or may not comprise 5% of the workforce.
@TheSkeward that's a very weird interpretation. The exact quote from Zuckerberg, the CEO, is "Overall, we expect to reduce our team size by around 10,000 people and to close around 5,000 additional open roles that we haven't yet hired." It seems extremely counterintuitive not to categorize that as "announces layoffs." Numerous media outlets reported it as announcing layoffs, and I think people should hesitate to bet on this market, especially given your own bet on NO despite it having—as apparent from this—fuzzy resolution criteria.
@TheSkeward Is there a meaningful difference between an announcement and an announcement of what a future announcement will contain? Either way the same information is being disseminated.
@TheSkeward why buy no? The market's criteria has been met, its >5% of workforce
@firstuserhere they announced it and as market description says, it doesn't have to be carrier out in this timeframe
"Overall, we expect to reduce our team size by around 10,000 people and to close around 5,000 additional open roles that we haven’t yet hired."
