American casino giant, MGM Resorts is laying off 18,000 workers

(Reuters) – Casino operator MGM Resorts International plans to lay off 18,000 furloughed workers in the United States as a global travel slowdown from the coronavirus crisis hurt its operations, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

The job cuts will start Monday, the report said.

The company had about 52,000 full-time and 18,000 part-time employees in the United States, as of Dec. 31, 2019.
