Grab Cuts 5% of Staff as Pandemic Pressure Sets In

After months of trying to stave off the impact of COVID-19, major companies are now starting to feel the long-term effects of the virus on the economy.

Because the service is tied to the incomes of eateries and other outlets, one has to think about the widespread implications of such layoffs.
