They should move any office out of California and to another US State

Amazon could stop treating workers like gulag prisoners or making Billion Dollar 'Woke SJW' tv shows that nobody watches and maybe more people would buy their crap

Revenue wasn't growing fast enough and the growth Amazon was getting wasn't profitable enough FOR THE STOCK OWNERS. You know how a business handles that: firing employees because businesses do not exist to create jobs. Business exists to create profits. You don't like that? Too bad for you, but if you were a true Capitalist, you'd love it.

• Amazon revenue for the quarter ending September 30, 2022 was $127.101B, a 14.7% increase year-over-year.

Capitalists are not firing employees because of LOTR ratings. Capitalists are firing employees because Amazon doesn't have any unions and Capitalists can do whatever they want to whoever they want for no reason at all. It is tough being poor white trash in America. Somebody bigger will give the trash a boot in the butt and the trash can't do a thing about it other than dream of the return of Trump to the White House.

After CNN, Mass Layoffs Hit Vox, Buzzfeed Washington Post And Other US Media Giants: Report

https://www.outlookindia.com/business/-after-cnn-layoffs-mass-layoffs-
hit-vox-buzzfeed-washington-post-and-other-us-media-giants-report-news-255871


Vox Media layoffs have started. The media house has mentioned that it would let go of almost seven per cent of its staff. Vox Media CEO Jim Bankoff has reportedly said that this 7 per cent of layoffs would impact close to 130 employees across departments, including the those in at the editorial front.

In addition to this, media reports suggest that Buzzfeed layoffs are also expected to impact around 12 per cent employees in the targeted sales, technology, production and content teams. These reports also add that apart from worsening economic condition, the CEO has said that these layoffs are also due to the changes in how people consume media.

Since US media giants have largely been impacted by layoffs, some more popular names are also facing the brunt. As per a CNN report, NBC News and MSNBC also laid off employees in double digits and most likely around 75 people. While the Washington Post did not confirm a definite number of employees to be laid off, some reports suggest that official updates are awaited.

Yahoo to lay off 20% of its staff as it cuts advertising tech business
Admitting defeat in the online advertising wars, the former search powerhouse is set to lay off 1,600 employees by the end of 2023.

ahoo has laid off 1,000 workers, or about 12% of its remaining staff, in a move aimed at restructuring the company’s advertising technology business unit and reallocating its finances more efficiently.

The layoffs, enacted Thursday, mark the end of Yahoo’s attempts to be a direct competitor to Google and Meta in the digital advertising market, according to a report from Axios, which was the first outlet to publicize the job cuts.

A further 600 employees will be let go in the second half of the year, bringing the total to about 20% of Yahoo’s total staff. The layoffs represent a downsizing of roughly 50% of the company’s ad tech division, Axios reported.

While company executives did not confirm the exact scope of this round, Zuckerberg said in March that the company planned to eliminate 10,000 positions by the end of May, after previously cutting 11,000 in November. Last month, Meta cut around 4,000 of those planned 10,000 positions, leaving about 6,000 positions potentially on the chopping block this round. At the end of 2022, Meta, which is the parent company of Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, had around 86,000 employees.

Quote:

Some of the biggest companies in tech including Google, Meta, Amazon, Microsoft, and Salesforce have hired foreign workers just weeks after reducing headcount by thousands of employees, according to a report.

Google, which laid off some 12,000 employees earlier this year, filed applications for low-paid foreign workers to come to the United States and assume highly specialized tech roles within the company, according to investigative journalist Lee Fang.

The Alphabet-owned search engine submitted applications for dozens of foreign workers who were seeking to fill roles including software engineers, analytical consultants, user experience researchers and others, Fang wrote in his Substack newsletter on Tuesday.

The Google-owned self-driving outfit Waymo also received government approval for H-1B visa applications for engineering jobs, according to Fang.

The newly employed workers from overseas will begin working at the company as soon as Aug. 17, Fang reported.

Quote:

While company executives did not confirm the exact scope of this round, Zuckerberg said in March that the company planned to eliminate 10,000 positions by the end of May, after previously cutting 11,000 in November. Last month, Meta cut around 4,000 of those planned 10,000 positions, leaving about 6,000 positions potentially on the chopping block this round. At the end of 2022, Meta, which is the parent company of Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, had around 86,000 employees.




Google, Meta, Amazon hire low-paid foreign workers after US layoffs: report

-workers-after-us-layoffs-report
/

Quote:

Some of the biggest companies in tech including Google, Meta, Amazon, Microsoft, and Salesforce have hired foreign workers just weeks after reducing headcount by thousands of employees, according to a report.

Google, which laid off some 12,000 employees earlier this year, filed applications for low-paid foreign workers to come to the United States and assume highly specialized tech roles within the company, according to investigative journalist Lee Fang.

The Alphabet-owned search engine submitted applications for dozens of foreign workers who were seeking to fill roles including software engineers, analytical consultants, user experience researchers and others, Fang wrote in his Substack newsletter on Tuesday.

The Google-owned self-driving outfit Waymo also received government approval for H-1B visa applications for engineering jobs, according to Fang.

The newly employed workers from overseas will begin working at the company as soon as Aug. 17, Fang reported.

CNN: Macy’s is laying off workers and closing five stores

https://www.cnn.com/2024/01/18/business/macys-is-laying-off-corporate-
workers-and-closing-five-stores/index.html


Quote:

Veteran department-store chain Macy’s is laying off about 3.5% of its workforce, or roughly 2,350 employees, and closing five stores as it continues to shrink its massive retail business for the online-shopping era.

“As we prepare to deploy a new strategy to meet the needs of an everchanging consumer and marketplace, we made the difficult decision to reduce our workforce by 3.5% to become a more streamlined company,” a Macy’s spokesperson told CNN.

Quote:

The restructuring – the third Wayfair has implemented since summer 2022 – is expected to save the company about $280 million, it said.

The cuts come after Hasbro, Etsy and Macy’s announced layoffs over the last month.



Hmmmmm... I missed the Etsy one.

That one can be directly attributed to the Democrats and the Biden* Administration for using the IRS to go after low income people for selling more than $600 online in a year when the limit used to be $20,000.

KIPLINGER: Etsy, eBay, PayPal Want IRS 1099-K Relief for Online Sellers

Companies like eBay, Etsy, and PayPal want Congress to raise the $600 reporting threshold for IRS Form 1099-K to give relief to millions of sellers who use their sites.

https://www.kiplinger.com/taxes/etsy-ebay-want-irs-1099-k-relief

Quote:

Online shopping sites like Etsy, and eBay, and payment network PayPal, among other companies want Congress to change the new $600 reporting threshold for IRS Form 1099-K. The rule, which won't apply for 2023 due to a recent delay from the IRS, affects millions of people who sell on sites like Etsy and Poshmark and get paid through third-party networks like PayPal, Square, and CashApp.

Previously, to receive a 1099-K, you had to have at least 200 third-party payment network transactions totaling more than $20,000 in gross payments. However, due to a tax law change, a single transaction on a payment network of just $600 could trigger a 1099-K. Some people call this the “600 rule.” The IRS delayed the rule Implementation last year, but that change and the most recent 1099-K delay for the 2023 tax year continue to cause confusion.

The Coalition for 1099-K Fairness (a group of online marketplaces that oppose the new rule) has urged Congress to get involved. The goal is to have bipartisan legislation that raises the 1099-K threshold, giving relief to “casual sellers.” That includes millions of people who are paid smaller amounts through third-party networks and haven’t received 1099-K forms in the past.



Fuck Joe Biden*.

Sports Illustrated's publisher terminates most of staff in mass layoff, union says

The publication's staff received layoff notices on Friday, the union said.

https://abcnews.go.com/Business/sports-illustrateds-publisher-terminat
es-staff-mass-layoff/story?id=106519272


Quote:

Sports Illustrated employees were notified on Friday that a "significant number, if not all" of their jobs were set to be eliminated, according to a new statement from the publication's union.

The Sports Illustrated union posted on X: "This is another difficult day in what has been a difficult four years for Sports Illustrated under Arena Group (previously The Maven) stewardship. We are calling on ABG to ensure the continued publication of SI and allow it to serve our audience in the way it has for nearly 70 years."





New York Times: Valentina Sampaio Is the First Transgender Model for Sports Illustrated

July 11th, 2020 (Nearly four years ago)

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/11/business/media/valentina-sampaio-tr
ansgender-sports-illustrated.html


Quote:

“The team at SI has created yet another groundbreaking issue by bringing together a diverse set of multitalented, beautiful women in a creative and dignified way,” she wrote.

Last year, she became Victoria Secret’s first openly transgender model and was hired for catalog work for VS Pink, the company’s athletic line. In 2017, Ms. Sampaio was also the first transgender model to grace the cover of a Vogue edition.



And we all know how Victoria's Secret has been doing and how they're going back to the sexy models and real women because they got tired of losing money.

Quote:

In recent years, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue has had a number of breakthrough moments.

The magazine, which debuted in 1964, put Ashley Graham, its first size 16 model, on the cover in 2016. Last year, it featured the Somali-American model Halima Aden, who was the first woman to wear a hijab and burkini in the magazine.



Just over 4 years ago.

Quote:

MJ Day, the editor of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, said in a statement that Ms. Sampaio had been on her radar for some time and that she had noticed her passion for activism, calling the Sports Illustrated rookie a “true pioneer for the LGBT+ community.”


Well... I hope you're all happy. You've all LGBTQIA+'ed your way right into unemployment.

And I suspect in 2024 that's not a good timing with the resume you've got. Companies aren't exactly hiring people with your mindset anymore since it's blatantly obvious in retrospect that you're destroying brands that have been around since and even before WWII.

Of course, most of us already knew what the outcome was going to be when this push was initiated by major companies, but not only did it fall on deaf ears at the time, but you decided it was a great idea for your bottom line to insult and defame your previously loyal consumer base in tandem with the corrupt Media for Twitter clout.

World's tiniest violin playing Dust in the Wind for Sports Illustrated.



May you rest in peace.

FORBES: Media Companies Have Slashed Over 20,000 Jobs In 2023

e-slashed-over-20000-jobs-in-2023/?sh=7c5bedcd22b7


20,000 journalism jobs gone in one year alone, huh? I thought Journalism mattered to Joe Biden* and Democrats?

Oh... but I get it. 20,000 is a very small number to them. They've allowed 8 Million illegal invader aliens to take over the country in just 3 years. They've sent over $150 Billion in US Taxpayer dollars to Ukraine and want to send another $150 Billion to them. They've added nearly $5 Trillion to the national debt in 3 years.

20,000 is nothing, right?


Hey Joe! Who's going to run defense for the Democrats and spend all day trying to destroy the opposition in the media if they all get laid off?

A.I.?
