    Update:

    According to several publications, Amazon is looking to fire employees from its unprofitable unites. Amazon Robotics, for example, seems to be severely affected by these layoffs. "My 1.5yrs tenure at Amazon Robotics AI came to an end in a surprising layoff (our entire robotics team was gone!)" wrote Jamie Zhang, software engineer with Amazon Robotics AI.

    It's widely believed that these layoffs will continue to happen through December. Majority of the companies have announced hiring freeze.

    Will this bloodbath continue in the next year as well? Express below.
