With the recent closures of theme parks, Disney has counted down the days of losing revenue. Crowds and smiles of park goers faded as these locations became ghost towns during the COVID-19 pandemic. Recently announced, Disney is going to furlough thousands of their non-union employees.
Beginning April 19th, Disney will determine which of the nearly two-hundred thousand employees will be furloughed. The parks have been closed since March 15th, with payments still being distributed to employees. At this time, the furlough will enable employees to focus on their own health and wellness.
