Jan. 5 (UPI) — Amazon and Salesforce announced they are eliminating thousands of jobs in the coming weeks, becoming the latest tech firms to do so citing the economic downturn.
Both companies announced the layoffs Wednesday, with Amazon stating 18,000 positions will be cut and Salesforce, a U.S. cloud-based software firm, stating its workforce would be reduced by 10%, representing some 7,000 jobs.
The announcements come as several tech companies have made the decision to eliminate thousands of positions following rapid expansion during the pandemic boom.
