About 10,000 people in business and
technical roles will be let go by Amazon.
Employees working on Amazon (AMZN) gadgets
(like its voice-assistant Alexa) as well as those in its retail and
human resources departments are expected to be
affected by the job cutbacks, which may begin as early as this week.
With the announcement, Amazon would become the most
recent in a string of tech firms that have recently announced massive layoffs.
