Gavin Newsom claimed on Wednesday.

“Salesforce is pledging to its workforce Ohana not to carry out any considerable lay offs above the next 90 days,” Benioff wrote in a tweet on Wednesday. “We will go on to shell out our hourly employees even though our offices are shut. We inspire our Ohana to shell out their very own individual hourly employees like housekeepers & doggy walkers.” (Benioff often works by using the Hawaiian phrase “ohana,” or “family,” to refer to Salesforce workers.)

Compass, TripActions and Triplebyte are amongst the companies that have reportedly lower staff in current weeks.
