Global online retailer Amazon plans to cut approximately 10,000 workers starting as soon as this week, according to Breitbart News.
The New York Times reports that according to verified sources, Amazon plans to reduce its corporate and technology workforce by as much as 10,000 employees as soon as this week, the largest downsizing in the firm’s history.
According to sources who declined to be named, Amazon is planning to cut jobs across its devices division, which includes the company’s voice assistant Alexa, as well as its retail division and human resources department.
The number of layoffs is still unknown, however, if the figure is around 10,000 it would account for approximately three percent of Amazon’s corporate workforce and less than one percent of its global employee count of over 1.5 million employees.
Happy holidays, Amazon employees, from mega-billionaire globalist Grinch Jeff Bezos!
