Disney will lay off 28,000 employees


Disney announced tonight (Wednesday) that it will lay off 28,000 workers in the U.S. due to frequent closures of the parks due to the corona and sparse arrival of visitors during the hours they were open. According to the company, two-thirds of those laid off are temporary workers.

Disney closed its amusement parks around the world during the Corona eruption, with everyone except Disneyland in California gradually opening up, with the company having to limit the number of visitors to keep its distance. The company employs about 100,000 people in its parks division in the United States.

“We made difficult decisions and began the process of cutting the workforce in our parks,” said Josh D’Amaro, director of the company’s parks department.

He made it clear that the limited occupancy and uncertainty about the situation, which he said added to the “unwillingness” on the part of the State of California to ease restrictions, caused the park not to reopen.

Disney’s Parks Department suffered a severe blow in the second quarter of 2020, with revenue falling to $ 983 million in the quarter from $ 6.58 billion last year.
