Mark Zuckerberg ‘Visibly Frustrated’ Over Worker’s Vacation Request


During a meeting, Mark Zuckerberg failed to hide his annoyance when an employee mentioned a vacation request.

The Meta CEO had a companywide meeting where staff could ask questions on June 30 during which the 38-year-old reportedly revealed his plans to cut staff who were underperforming.

The Facebook boss warned his employees of a the recent market slump and how it “might be one of the worst downturns that we’ve seen in recent history”. He explained why this had prompted his recent decision to cut some costs in the company by reducing staff that were not performing up to standard.

The billionaire “appeared visibly frustrated” after one employee asked if “Meta days” or extra time off – which was introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic – would be a permanent fixture in the company and continue into the new year.

Zuckerberg replied:

“Um … all right,”

“Given my tone in the rest of the Q&A, you can probably imagine what my reaction to this is.”
