DoorDash has decided to cut jobs as a result of the sudden drop in demand and the skyrocketing costs. During the pandemic, the company hired a lot of people to help people who were stuck at home.

The business hired a lot of people to handle the surge in demand brought on by the pandemic. However, the company is now dealing with skyrocketing prices as a result of the unexpected decline in demand from inflation-conscious customers.
"We did not manage the growth of our workforce with the discipline that we ought to have. That's my fault. As a result, operating costs increased rapidly, "Tony Xu, the company's chief executive, stated in a note to staff that was published on the website of the business.
