Amazon job cuts are now expected to reach 20,000

In an endeavour to lay off around 20,000 staff, company managers have been instructed during the past few days to look for employee work performance issues.

Staff at all levels will probably be impacted as Amazon employees are ranked from level 1 to level 7. The equivalent of 20,000 people is roughly 6% of corporate staff and 1.3% of Amazon’s 1.5 million-person workforce including hourly workers.
