Facebook to double Zurich staff

In an interview in today's German Handelsblatt, the DACH head of Facebook says that Zurich office will soon double its work force from the current 80 employees. Translation:

"Soon we will expand our office in Zurich. Today we have 80 employees there, focused on augmented reality and virtual reality. In the future, more than twice as many people will work there, including in sales."

That fits in! It's well known that the goal is to turn Zurich into a capital for Technocrats. Soon they will be the ones who govern. All others will be on a subservient level.. There only funktion will be to serve the needs of the Technocrats.
