According to the Orlando Sentinel, the Walt Disney Co. acknowledged Friday that it had cut 1,900 jobs in 6 weeks, including 1,400 in Florida alone. This makes for the largest amount of job cuts since Disney cut between 1,200 and 1,400 jobs in Orlando during spring 2001. Disney is Central Florida's largest employer and is said to have had about 62,000 local employees before the recent cuts.
