Slow page loads == job cuts?

Interesting factoid: Every 100ms of latency costs Amazon 1% in profit-per-visit.

The same source claims that Google stickiness drops 20% if page load time increases by 500ms.

Which leads me to wonder how much revenue-loss LinkedIn has suffered over the past five years because of its agonizingly slow page loads, and how many of the 10% of its employees who were just laid off might still have their jobs if the pitiful dunderheads who allowed LinkedIn's site to be so pitifully slow hadn't been such pitiful dunderheads.
