Amazon will lay off 9,000 employees in the next few weeks, according to CNBC, in response to a letter sent to employees this week.
The company's first wave of layoffs was announced earlier this year, mostly in the retail and human resources divisions. The new wave of cuts is expected to help the company lower costs.
Andy wrote in a tweet that his goal for this year is to be less leaner while still allowing us to continue to actively invest in important long-term initiatives that we believe will greatly improve the lives of Amazon customers.
Employees at Amazon's cloud division, Twitch video service, and advertising division will be affected this time. The HR department is also affected by the most extensive layoffs in the company's history.
Amazon's latest wave of layoffs is a continuation of a large amount of work that has affected many tech giants in recent months, including Alphabet, Microsoft, Meta*, IBM, and others.
