Disney is laying off 28,000 employees from it’s struggling Theme Parks


Walt Disney Co will lay off approximately 28,000 U.S. employees in its theme parks division, the company said on Tuesday, as its resorts dealt with limited presence and the continued closure of California’s Disneyland due to the coronavirus pandemic.

About two-thirds of the laid-off workers are part-time workers, the company said in a statement.

Disney shut its theme parks worldwide when the pandemic started spreading out earlier this year. All but Disneyland gradually reopened, though the business was forced to restrict the variety of visitors to enable physical distancing.

” We have made the very hard choice to begin the procedure of minimizing our workforce at our Parks, Experiences and Products sector at all levels,” Josh D’Amaro, chairman of the parks system, said in a statement.

He mentioned the parks’ restricted capacity and continued uncertainty about the duration of the pandemic, which he said was “intensified in California by the state’s aversion to lift limitations that would allow Disneyland to reopen.”
