Walmart has announced worker layoffs at some of its distribution centers:
“The layoffs appear to be a sign of corporate belt-tightening and a byproduct of Walmart’s automation of its fulfillment capabilities. The retailer has opened highly automated FCs in Joliet, IL, and Lancaster, TX, as part of a plan to move goods faster and at a lower cost. Those facilities and ones in McCordsville, IN, and Greencastle, PA, follow the successful implementation of the technology at Pedricktown.“
