Disney is laying off 28,000 employees as an epidemic in its theme parks

The cuts will affect Disney’s parks, experiences and product unit. The company stated that 67% of the scheduled employees would be part-time employees.

Disney’s theme park closed as an epidemic this spring, causing a huge blow to the company’s bottom line. During the first three months of 2020, the company’s profit decreased by 91%.
Josh D’Amro, president of Disney (The district) Parks said staffing cuts were necessary due to the “prolonged effect” of coronovirus on the business. This included “limited capacity due to physical capacity requirements and constant uncertainty about the duration of the epidemic”.

“As this decision is difficult today, we believe that the actions we are taking will enable us to have more effective and efficient operations when normalized,” DiMaro said in a statement.

D’Amro said Disney employees have always been “critical to our success, playing an important and important role in providing a world-class experience.”

“We look forward to providing opportunities where we can return for them,” he said.

D’Amro also imposed a partial blame on the state of California for lifting sanctions, which would allow Disneyland to reopen. Disneyland and California Adventure, the company’s major resorts in California, have been closed since March.

The California Governor’s Office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Disney originally planned to reopen the resort in Anaheim, California on July 17, but that reopening was delayed indefinitely.
The company’s resort Disney World in Florida also closed its doors in March, but re-construction for its parks began in July. The resort reopened with safety protocols and health measures, including reduced capacity in its parks and requiring all staff and guests to wear masks.
