Disney plans to cut 32,000 jobs before mid-2021


Disney Group plans to abolish a total of 32,000 jobs in its theme park activities by the end of the first half of 2021, due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, including 28,000 jobs in the United States that it announced last September its intention to cancel.
In its annual report submitted on Wednesday to the US Securities and Exchange Commission, the giant company indicated that the number of its employees in various parts of the world until the end of October reached 203,000 people, of whom 155,000 work in activities directly related to cabarets.
Last September, Disney announced that it would cut 28,000 jobs in the United States due to the closure of some of its parks or the very limited size of its activities during the pandemic.
“In total, about 32,000 employees will see their contracts expire in the first half of 2021,” the world’s leading entertainment group wrote in its annual report.
The report pointed to the impact of “the current climate, including the effects of Covid-19 and the changing environment in which we operate.”
The group also includes Disneyland in California, the second most visited theme park in the world, after Disney World in Orlando (Florida), in addition to other Disney theme parks in Asia or Paris, which usually attract tens of millions of tourists annually. (AFP)
