Amazon ([email protected])’s job cuts are affecting a broad spectrum of its business, including retail, grocery, robotics, drone delivery and cloud computing, according to data circulating on LinkedIn. About 2,300 jobs were cut in Amazon’s home state of Washington, 500 in California and 300 in New York. The layoffs follow over a decade of unbridled growth and expansion at the company’s fulfillment centers. The tech giant’s shares lost half their value in 2022, the worst year since the dot-com crash in 2000. Analysts expect revenue growth to fall 6 percent and remain in the single digits through the end of 2023. Amazon announced in January that it would lay off 18,000 employees, the largest round of cuts in the company’s history.
