The Great Remorse takes over the Great Resignation as most workers who quit their job are having a hard time finding a new one

https://www.streetinsider.com/General+News/Amazon+(AMZN)+prepares+to+layoff+thousands+of+workers+-+NYT/20844003.html
Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) is preparing to lay off around 10,000 people in its corporate and technology segments as soon as this week, according to a report by The New York Times on Monday.

The report states that sources told them the job cuts will be concentrated in Amazon's devices unit, retail division, and human resources. The cuts would represent the largest cut in the company's history.

However, the NYT explained that the total number of layoffs "remains fluid," although if it is around the 10,000 mark, it will represent approximately 3% of the tech giant's corporate employees and less than 1% of its global workforce, which includes hourly workers.

This whole phenomenon, including the so called "quiet quitting" fad, has never made any sense to me. People decide to do the minimum work they can get away with, while expecting to get the same (or more) pay, and then are shocked when their employer finds someone to replace them that is willing to do more for the same (or less) pay. Gee, who could have possibly seen that coming?

I haven't read anywhere that people in those jobs are "shocked" when they get laid off. They are completely expecting it and just looking at the calendar to see how long it took their bosses to realize. But, if you have a citation where an employee (not a reporter's commentary) says "shocked", please post.

Umm all the employees who were waiting to be fired for doing the bare minimum (or less).

But it's not fair. Everyone is entitled to a good paying job regardless of experience or competence, and the greedy capitalists are more concerned about their bottom lines than the workers' welfare.
