Millions of Americans have lost their jobs or have been laid off due to the pandemic. A very popular vacation spot is letting some of their employees go as well.
As we learned back in June, Disney World furloughed 43,000 of its employees amid the virus.
We are now learning that Universal Orlando has laid off an unspecified amount of employees right after opening in the beginning of this month.
It’s heartbreaking to hear how many Americans have lost their jobs due to the virus; here is what Universal has to say about that.
Tom Schroder, a Universal Orlando spokesperson told FOX Business,
“We have made the difficult decision to reduce our Parks & Resorts workforce across multiple locations and business unit.” “This decision was not made lightly, but was necessary to prepare us for the future, stated Tom Schroder, a spokesperson for Universal Orlando.Tom Schroder, spokesperson for Universal Orlando
“We are working to structure and strengthen our business for the future in anticipation of the tourism industry taking time to fully recover,” said Schroder. “In that regard, we have already taken important steps such as adjusting budgets and implementing salary reductions and furloughs.”Tom Schroder, spokesperson for Universal Orlando
Universal has re-opened their theme parks since June 5th. According to Tourism Economics, they predict that global travel will not resume to its normal pace until 2023.
