Disney, known to have the happiest place on earth, is going to terminate around 28,000 employees due to the impact of Covid-19 in its business in California.
Walt Disney Company’s Chairman of Parks, Experiences, and Products Josh D’Amaro said that the company has made a ‘very difficult decision to begin the process of reducing’ its workforce.
Part of the redundancy was the ‘limited capacity’ caused by physical distancing requirements.
Citing a report from Fox Business, it reveals that California had implemented various restrictions that made it impossible for the entertainment park to reopen as of posting time, a decision which the D’Amaro states has exacerbated the state of the theme park and its employees.
“Our Cast Members have always been key to our success, playing a valued and important role in delivering a world-class experience, and we look forward to providing opportunities where we can for them in return,” he said.
