Universal Orlando Cuts 70 Jobs

From the Orlando Business Journal:

Universal Orlando laid off about 70 workers — less than 1 percent of its work force — in an effort to adapt to slowing business conditions.

Universal spokesman Tom Schroder said the layoffs took place Jan.22.

“This has not been easy for us,” Schroder said. “It’s taken much thought and review. We are doing everything possible to ease the process for those affected and ease their transition.”

Most were management workers. Universal didn’t provide a specific number of positions, nor did comment on severance for the workers.
