Amazon plans to lay off about 10,000 employees

Interestingly, this potential cut comes so close to the holiday shopping season, when the internet shopping giant typically values ​​stability.

If the layoffs do happen, Amazon would be the latest company to join the long list of technology companies that have opted for mass layoffs.

This month Meta – the parent company of Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger – announced it will lay off 11,000 employees, 13% of its workforce; Elon Musk, the world’s richest man and the new owner of Twitter, laid off half of a workforce of some 7,500 people worldwide.

While driver-driven car-sharing company Lyft said it would cut 13% of its employees and Stripe, a payment processing platform, said it would cut 14% of its employees, roughly 1,100 jobs.
