Trump's company makes more than 2,500 COVID-19 related layoffs and furloughs
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 16 - 04 - 2020

The Trump Organisation has laid off or furloughed more than 2,500 people as the coronavirus pandemic has led to extended closures at most of U.S. President Trump's hotels and resorts, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday.
The Washington Post cited public filings and people familiar with the properties.
Filings posted on Wednesday revealed nearly 800 additional layoffs at Trump's hotel in Washington and the Trump National Doral resort in Florida, two of Trump's top revenue-producing hotels and resorts. In 2018, they take in a combined $116.8 million in revenue, according to Trump's financial disclosure from last year.
Since late March, Trump's Doral resort has been closed, while the District hotel is still open but operates with limited services and a skeleton staff.
In all, the American newspaper said that 10 of Trump's 24 hotels and clubs have reported layoffs or furloughs since the start of the coronavirus pandemic in the District of Columbia, Sterling, Va., New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Honolulu, Chicago, Doral, Fla., and Vancouver.
The layoffs or furloughs have targeted a range of positions including food and beverage employees — such as cooks, bartenders and servers — as well as housekeeping staffs, greenskeepers, valets, in addition to other hotel service positions, it added.
"This cessation of operations of the Golf Club and these furloughs will be temporary," Lili Amini, general manager of the Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles, wrote in a letter that notified Los Angeles County officials about the 117 layoffs there on March 23.
"Based on the fluid and rapidly evolving nature of this situation, however, at this time we are unable to provide a specific date at which we will be able to recommence regular Golf Club operations and return the furloughed employees to work." Amini added.
