Adding to the 9,000 layoffs already announced by Amazon.com Inc., this is the company’s largest round of layoffs ever.
Following the completion of the second phase of its operating plan, Amazon has chosen to fire another 9,000 employees. The business has made the decision to let 18,000 employees go in January. The massive e-commerce company has now cut 27,000 jobs in total. The company’s largest layoff has ever occurred.
The changes, which would mostly impact the Twitch live streaming service business, Amazon Web Services, human resources, and advertising units, were announced internally on Monday by CEO Andy Jassy.
