Amazon is laying off a further 9,000 workers, adding to the 18,000 lay-offs announced in January, as a downturn in consumer spending forces the ecommerce and cloud computing giant into a retrenchment. The majority of the new cuts will come at the company’s cloud computing unit, Amazon Web Services, the video-game streaming platform Twitch, and its human resources and advertising departments. The company employs more than 1.5mn workers worldwide, mostly warehouse and fulfilment workers.
