The way government tracks jobs in the United States has changed. With workers taking on two or even three jobs just to make ends meet, it's hard to get anyone to analyze the real numbers when it comes to employment in Arizona.

But when companies begin to announce massive layoffs across Arizona, it's hard to ignore the devastation the volatile economy is wreaking on families this year.

Announcing the Layoffs for 2023

Labor Laws in the United States require employers who have one hundred or more employees to provide at least 60-days' notice in advance of mass layoffs or planned closures. The businesses above are by no means a definitive list of layoffs coming to the state.

Big Tech companies, many of which are based in California's Silicon Valley, are being hit as well. Thousands of workers in California were handed pink slips in August. More workers could be facing announcements of impending job losses as we move closer to the holidays.

California began to outpace Florida, as an increasing number of workers lost jobs this past summer.

Coming up behind California is Colorado, which is currently in second place for most impending job losses. Illinois, Texas, Washington, New York, New Jersey, Florida, Michigan, and Georgia round out the top states for lost jobs planned through the end of the year.

Even tech sectors across the United States and Arizona are beginning to see more unemployment.
