U.S. No additional economic measures, airlines laid off in large numbers or September 28 at 5:15 a.m.
In the United States, additional economic measures to cope with the spread of the new coronavirus have not been established due to conflicts between the ruling and opposition parties.
Major airlines have indicated that they will lay off more than 30,000 people in total if additional measures are not implemented, and there are growing concerns about the large number of unemployed.
In response to the spread of the new virus, the U.S. government has supported troubled airlines on a scale of 25 billion U.S. dollars and 2.6 trillion yen in Japanese yen to maintain employment, but since the budget ends at the end of this month, additional measures are the focus.
However, in the U.S. Congress, the conflict between the ruling party, the Republican Party, and the opposition Democratic Party of Japan has become increasingly sharp over the personnel affairs of the U.S. Supreme Court, and there is no hope of passing additional measures.
In this situation, aviation companies have again indicated their plans to cut jobs on a large scale, as it is difficult to maintain employment.
American Airlines and United Airlines alone are planned to lay off at least 30,000 people, potentially affecting locations around the world, including Japan.
Additional economic measures in the United States include other measures to maintain jobs for small and medium-sized enterprises, and there is growing concern that the conflict between the ruling and opposition parties will result in a large number of unemployed people.
