‘Zuckbucks’ Org slashes jobs, shifts focus from mail-in ballots.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife ‌Priscilla Chan’s charitable foundation ‍laid off dozens ‌of ‌employees Wednesday in an‍ ostensible restructuring.

The Chan ‌Zuckerberg Initiative, which was founded and is led by the couple, laid off ‍48 employees, a foundation spokesperson told ⁤Insider.

CZI⁢ sent ‌hundreds ‌of millions of dollars, dubbed “Zuckbucks,”⁣ to an organization called the Center ⁤for Tech and Civic Life, which ⁢used ⁣the funds ‌to help administer elections ⁢in 2020 in largely Democratic districts ‍in multiple states, which critics argued was ⁢an attempt ‌to boost ⁣turnout.

A ⁣CZI employee verified the‌ firings on the widely used tech worker app​ Blind, describing the‍ situation as ‍a “bloodbath,” according to Insider.

The ⁣layoffs are aimed ‍at reorganizing⁤ CZI’s approach to philanthropic grants and financing education advancement, according to The 74 Million.

A spokeswoman for CZI confirmed the details of‌ The 74 Million’s reporting⁤ in a statement to Insider.

“Guided by insights from our grantees, research, and educators, ⁤our work in education continues to evolve,⁢ and the structure of our teams has changed as a result,” she added.

Left-wing billionaire George Soros’ ⁤ Open Society ⁤Foundations also⁤ recently announced plans to lay off 40‌ percent of their worldwide employees, according to The Associated Press.

Is Zuckerberg’s shift ‍away from elections concerning?

It is the ‍nonprofit⁢ organization’s second significant staff reduction in three years.

The CTCL obtained hundreds of millions⁤ of dollars in funding from Zuckerberg and Chan in 2020 “to promote safe and reliable ‌voting,” according to the organization.

People have described Zuckerberg’s contributions as “Zuckbucks.”

The CTCL‌ spent the money on assisting the likely Democratic districts in‌ enlisting additional poll workers and adding more ballot drop boxes while advocating for ‌mail-in voting.

CZI did not immediately respond to the ​DCNF’s request ‍for comment.
