Disney announced this Tuesday that it will lay off 28,000 employees in the United States due to the economic impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the industries it operates, mainly theme parks.

“We simply cannot maintain a complete team by operating with such a limited capacity,” authorities said in a statement. Two-thirds of those reached work part-time.

The decision stems from the “prolonged impact of covid-19 on our businesses, including the reduction in capacity at (exploited ) sites linked to physical distance, and uncertainties about the duration of the pandemic,” the group explained in a statement.

Between April and June, the turnover of these activities fell by 85% over the same period last year, to 983 million dollars.

The cut will affect amusement parks, cruises, events and derivative products.

In a statement, the company mentions that in California the critical situation is exacerbated by the unwillingness of the authorities to lift the restrictions, which could enable the reopening of the facilities.
