After Decades of Near-Constant Expansion, Amazon Starts Widespread Layoffs in Corporate Ranks

From a Washington Post story by Julian Mark and Rachel Lerman headlined “Amazon starts widespread layoffs in corporate ranks”:

After decades of near-constant expansion, Amazon began laying off corporate workers on Tuesday, becoming the latest tech giant to slash its workforce in recent weeks.

Amazon is expected to cut about 10,000 workers, about 3 percent of its corporate workforce. The company started communicating the layoffs to employees Tuesday afternoon, according to people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe sensitive matters.

Amazon didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
