The wave of global high-tech layoffs refuses to fade.

After laying off 18,000 workers worldwide between November and January, Amazon is preparing for another wave.

CEO Andy Jassi issued a memo to the team on Monday morning, in which he announced that the company is expected to lay off another 9,000 workers soon.

The decision came after the company realized that the economy would not recover quickly, and due to the uncertainty in the near future. Despite the announcement, the stock is falling (on Wall Street, the sentiment in the event of notification of streamlining is usually increases). "We changed our priorities.

We will support the people we have to say goodbye to."

Amazon recruited many employees during the Corona virus, so the world's largest chain retailer prospered. At the end of 2021, the company had 1.6 million employees, double from the end of 2019. Jassi will also examine the company's expenses and try to optimize them.
