Amazon says it will lay off another 9000 employees
Amazon plans to eliminate 9000 more jobs in the next few weeks, CEO Andy Jassy has told staff in a memo.
The job cuts would mark the second largest round of lay-offs in the company’s history, adding to the 18,000 employees the company said it would lay off in January.
In the memo, Jassy said the second phase of the company’s annual planning process completed this month and led to the additional job cuts.
He said Amazon will still hire in some strategic areas.
