Amazon To Fire 18,000 Workers Due To “Uncertain Economy.”

Guwahati: The beginning of the year 2023 will witness another round of layoffs as Amazon made the announcement on Wednesday that it will eliminate more than 18,000 positions blaming a shaky economy.

CEO Andy Jassy in a statement said, “Between the reduction we made in November and the ones we’re sharing today, we plan to eliminate just over 18,000 roles.”

The CEO further said, “The Company’s leadership is deeply aware that these role eliminations are difficult for people, and we don’t take these decisions lightly.”

“We are working to support those who are affected and are providing packages that include a separation payment, transitional health insurance benefits, and external job placement support,” he said.

He stated that beginning on January 18, the effected employees would be informed of the cutting off.

It should be noted that some global corporations let go of their staff members last year, leaving them jobless.

The companies include Meta, Twitter, Google, Microsoft, among several others.
