亞馬遜 "準備大規模裁員"，因為銷售放緩 - 報道
創始人傑夫-貝索斯（Jeff Bezos）已經卸任首席執行官，但仍是董事會主席，他在社交媒體上說，現在是 "壓低艙門 "的時候。
根據追蹤此類公告的Challenger, Gray & Christmas公司的報告，今年迄今為止，美國科技公司總體上減少了28,000多個工作崗位，比一年前增加了一倍多。
The company had already introduced a hiring freeze and halted some of its warehouse expansions, warning it had over-hired during the pandemic. It has also taken steps to shut some parts of its business, cancelling projects such as a personal delivery robot.
"As part of this year's review, we're of course taking into account the current macro-environment and considering opportunities to optimize costs," the company said in a statement then.
Though overall revenue rose 15% in the most recent quarter, the firm has remained cautious about the outlook as the slowdown expands into other areas, including its cloud computing unit, Amazon Web Services, which has long powered its profits.
Founder Jeff Bezos, who has stepped down as chief executive but remains chairman of the board, has said on social media that it was a time to "batten down the hatches".
Amazon joins a string of other tech companies that have announced job cuts, warning of a downturn in the economy. The list includes Meta, parent of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, who also recently said it would cut 11,000 jobs - the biggest reduction in its history or roughly 13% of its workforce.
Overall US-based tech companies shed more than 28,000 jobs so far this year, more than double a year earlier according to a report by Challenger, Gray & Christmas, which tracks such announcements.
