Over a thousand employees that were furloughed earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, will not be brought back.

MGM Resorts International, according to WXYZ, is going to be laying 18,000 of their furloughed workers in the U.S. Those workers who were furloughed, their health benefits should continue through the end of September, though.

MGM Grand Detroit President & COO Davis Tsai:

Unfortunately, the pandemic continues to impact many businesses, including our own. Due to the mandated capacity restrictions and business demand, many of our amenities and venues remain closed for the time being. With these positions currently unavailable, it has not been possible to bring back all of our employees.

I think we should get used to big corporate companies cutting money back and laying people off, as they will attempt to find money-saving short cuts during these pandemic times.
