Disney announces layoffs of 32,000 jobs in the first half of 2021

Date: 2020-11-27

The 32,000 layoffs this time include the 28,000 layoffs previously announced.

Recently, Disney announced that it will lay off 32,000 employees in the first half of 2021, mainly involving theme park employees. The number of layoffs this time has risen from the company’s announcement of layoffs of 28,000 in September, mainly due to the limited customer base for Disneyland due to health incidents.

Previously, Disney's Disney parks in Florida and outside the United States have reopened. Earlier this month, Disney stated that it would allow more employees at Disneyland in Southern California to take unpaid leave due to uncertainty about when California will allow the theme park to reopen.

At the end of last month, France implemented new blockade measures, and Disneyland Paris was forced to close again. Currently, Disney's theme parks in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Tokyo are still open normally.

A Disney spokesperson confirmed that the 32,000 layoffs included the 28,000 previously announced layoffs.
