  • Minnesota: Centro Comercial will lay off or discharge hundreds of workers
  • 211 workers from different departments will lose their jobs
  • They hope to reinstate members who have requested leave when conditions allow

Mall of America, the nation’s largest shopping center located in Minnesota, will lay off or discharge hundreds of workers, according to information provided by the outlet Only money.

According to the report, a spokesperson for the business establishment confirmed to FOX Business that 211 workers from different departments will permanently lose their jobs at the end of the month.

Also, about 178 employees could extend their “temporary leave” beyond September 30.

“When the year began, no one could have predicted the enormous challenges we would face as a company, community and nation,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “While we continue to make progress at Mall of America, the road to recovery will be slow.”

The spokesperson added that the MOA hopes to reinstate team members who have requested leave when “conditions allow.”

According to the Minnesota Star Tribune, which first reported the news, the Mall of America notified the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, but the notice has yet to appear on the office’s website. The outlet noted that the mall generally employs 900 to 1,200 employees.

Mall of America reopened with new security measures on June 10 after it closed due to the coronavirus pandemic in March.

The mall planned to reopen on June 1, but the move was delayed due to protests in the Twin Cities over the death of George Floyd and acts of vandalism by protesters reproaching his death in various states across the country.

In the state of Florida they also announced layoffs at five Universal Orlando hotels

Universal Orlando has announced layoffs at five more hotels. Last week it had to take the same measure in three other of its iconic businesses, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Universal Orlando has yet to recover from the months when the coronavirus outbreak turned its theme parks into desolate places. From the bustle to the temple. From employment to unemployment.

So sadly, there are 1,291 employees at the Royal Pacific Resort, Sapphire Falls Resort, Aventura, and two of Universal’s new Endless Summer hotels that are either suspended indefinitely or permanently laid off, according to notices filed with the state.

Some 176 employees working at a hotel support facility were also laid off. Last week, Universal announced the layoff or temporary suspension of 839 employees at three of its other hotels: the Hard Rock, Loews Portofino Bay and Cabana Bay Beach Resort.

In letters to the state, Shawn German, regional director of human resources for Loews Hotels & Co., said the company had initially believed that the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent closures would be temporary.

He said the company had even started to withdraw some licensed employees “in anticipation of returning to more normal levels of business, as we believed the pandemic had started to subside.”

But that was not what happened.

“Unfortunately, in recent weeks COVID-19 has become more and more widespread and at an increasing rate in the United States, and Florida in particular,” German said, adding that government orders from some states requiring that Floridians quarantined for two weeks also affected the business.

That led to a “sudden, dramatic and unexpected change in bookings that now makes it clear that demand for travel, events and hospitality services will take much longer to resume than anticipated,” he said.

Universal revealed a 94% drop in revenue in July as it had to close theme parks. And, so far it has closed four of its hotels: Sapphire Falls, Aventura, Portofino Bay, and Endless Summer Dockside Inn.

Jennifer Hodges, a spokeswoman for Loews Hotels & Co., said Hard Rock, Royal Pacific Resort, Cabana Bay Beach Resort and Universal’s Endless Summer Resort Surfside Inn will remain open.

“Unfortunately, the global pandemic surrounding COVID-19 has forced Loews Hotels & Co to make some tough decisions when it comes to our workforce,” Hodges said. “Team members are the backbone of our company and rest assured that these actions were not taken lightly.”
