The recent wave of high-tech job losses continued this week, with Amazon and Microsoft laying off thousands of employees.
Amazon began its latest job cuts in Canada, the United States, and Costa Rica on Wednesday as part of a global plan to cut 18,000 positions.
On the same day, Microsoft announced the layoff of 10,000 employees, accounting for nearly 5% of its workforce.
Neither company would say whether the layoffs affected Canadian operations.
Still, several Amazon employees across the country posted on LinkedIn that they had been laid off on Wednesday and were looking for work.
