Amazon Plans Cuts to Shed Whole Foods’ Pricey Image – Bloomberg


Bloomberg is forecasting major employee cuts and the story is being backed up here.

The Seattle-based web giant, which recently bought the upscale grocer for £11 billion, could slash cashier positions as it automates jobs and cuts prices, Bloomberg has claimed.

It is economically sound practice to do away with labor, and make the Whole Foods delivery business the new model. It appears to be Amazon’s end run at the gourmet delivery market.

Self serve kiosks on college campuses and the takeover of wholefoods should concern everyone. The in crowd wasn’t worried about a McDonalds employee or a cab driver being phased out, perhaps they will wake up.
