It is being coined the "Amazon Effect", retail stores are closing their doors in massive numbers. If you've visited a mall lately you'll notice the foot traffic is sparse. Consumers are opting to shop online instead of make the drive to shopping centers like Kmart and J.C.Penney. This drop in shoppers has caused 4,624 retail brick-and-mortar locations to close their doors for good. An estimated 180,000 full-time and part-time company wide employees have been let go. While Amazon is hiring quickly, and now has over 341,000 employees, without retraining these jobless workers will have a hard time picking up these new tech jobs.
