Disney to cut its 25,000 parks unit worker due to the coronavirus outbreak

On Tuesday, Walt Disney Co. (DIS) announced that it would furlough 28,000 employees located at its United States theme parks.

The mass media and entertainment company said that its establishments in California would be closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We have made the very difficult decision to begin the process of reducing our workforce at our Parks, Experiences and Products segment at all levels,” Disney’s Parks Unit Chairman Josh D’Amaro said in a statement.

“However, we simply cannot responsibly stay fully staffed while operating at such limited capacity,” he added.

Disney stated that the management had tried to avoid layoffs by cutting expenses, suspending projects, and streamlining operations.

Moreover, the company stated that almost two-thirds of the laid-off employees would be part-time workers.

Disney said that it started to pay health benefits for furloughed workers in April 2020.
