News Daily Digital Desk: There was bad news at the beginning of the year. It was reported that the online retail company Amazon (Amazon) is going to lay off 18 thousand workers around the world very soon. This includes the organization’s India staff. In fact, the company is going to move in that direction. However, during the retrenchment period, the employees were informed about the financial package. On this day, it has been informed by the multinational company that 5 thousand 200 crore rupees are going to fall out of the company’s pocket while laying off more than 18 thousand workers.
Last year, several international companies, including Facebook, Twitter, laid off workers. In a statement in January, Amazon CEO Andy Jassy said, “It was decided in November that we will eliminate 18,000 positions.” It was then known that most European workers would lose their jobs as a result. 1,000 workers may be laid off in India. Sympathizing with the workers losing their jobs, Andy said, “Those workers will be in a difficult situation. I could not take this decision easily.”

The retrenchment process has already begun around the world. However, the Amazon authorities will give one-time money to help the workers who lost their jobs. They have also been promised 5 months salary. Also, the online retail company will provide more benefits including health insurance. As a result, we have to spend about 5 thousand 200 crores in Indian currency.

In November last year, Meta, owned by Facebook-WhatsApp-Instagram, laid off 11,000 workers together. The historic layoff move is to improve the organization, it said. Mark Zuckerberg (Nark Zuckerberg) expressed regret after mass layoffs around the world. The Silicon Valley firm is witnessing the biggest layoffs in Mater’s 28-year history. On the other hand, microblogging site Twitter started laying off workers in India. The company’s new owner, Elon Musk, claimed that it was necessary to lay off many employees of the global company to get Twitter in the right direction. “Unfortunate” but they have to make this decision, said Musk.
