Walt Disney World in Florida plans to furlough about 43,000 workers after it closed last month because of the coronavirus pandemic.
In mid-March, Disney theme parks worldwide closed, including Disney World in Florida and Disneyland Resort in California.
A furlough generally would have an end date but in this case, it does not because of the uncertainties about when the coronavirus crisis will end.
The workers, who are expected to be called back to their jobs, will be able to keep their health benefits during the furlough period, and they will not lose their seniority or have their pay reduced.
- The workers earn $13 to $20 an hour, he said.
About 200 employees who are considered essential workers will remain on the job, including those in housekeeping, custodial, and lake patrol positions. Unfortunately, prince charming can’t work from home.
