    This thing again brings to mind the employment issue. 700 cuts is the minimum the company is aiming at. Definitely not a good sign considering a bigger picture.

    But as a matter of fact, the company is only considering "Amazon". It is a clear attempt at pushing its profit margins even further.

    Yeah, 1300 cuts easily signifies more than 50% of savings, though the cost will be diverted towards installing these robots. But as it says, the cost would be recovered in a couple of years.

    And after that, it's all going to be a plus for the e-com giant, right?
