Lyft and Laying Off Employees



As of April 29, Lyft is set to lay of 17% of its workforce (982 employees) as a cost-saving measure in the context of severe economic downturn and decrease in demand for rides.

The harsh conditions continue a trend of downturn having begun from the first apparitions and spread of coronavirus in major U.S. cities.
