A number of New Yorkers are searching for work after Amazon suddenly decided to close four locations.
A recent WARN notice states Amazon is closing four stores in New York. Among the closers are Amazon 4-Star, book, and pop-up stores, according to the New York State Department of Labor Office of Dislocated Workers Program.
Over 50 workers will be out of a job just after the Fourth of July, according to the WARN notice.
The sites of the four stores and the number of people impacted are:
7 W 34th Street, New York City, NY 10001 (14 employees affected)
10 Columbus Circle, New York City, NY 10019 (20 employees affected)
72 Spring Street, New York City, NY 10012 (11 employees affected)
423 W 14th Street, New York City, NY 10014 (6 employees affected)
A plant closing is a reason 51 will be out of work.
"Due to the permanent closing of four sites in New York City effective 4/9/2022, 51 employees will be separated on 7/7/2022," the WARN notice states.
A reason for the plant closing is listed as "economic."
The WARN notice classifies the Amazon business as "an American multinational technology company which focuses on e-commerce, cloud computing, digital streaming, and artificial intelligence."
The employees are not represented by a union, according to the WARN notice.
Workers at another Amazon location in New York recently helped make a "historic" change.
Amazon warehouse workers from a Staten Island facility voted to form the first union in Amazon's 27-year history.
