Uber announces further job losses in wake of Covid-19

Uber has announced plans to further reduce its operating expenses in response to the economic challenges resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The ride hailing firm has been hard hit by the slowdown in travel caused by the outbreak.

As part of a restructuring, the company expects to reduce its workforce by approximately 3,000 full-time employee roles.

In connection with these actions, Uber said it estimates that it will incur approximately $175-$220 million in charges.

The latest layoffs bring the total reductions in recent weeks to a quarter of the workforce, with around 6,700 staff to go in total.
