Boeing to cut 20% of workforce by end of 2021

boeing-787-dreamliner-picture-id458573941?s=612x612&profile=RESIZE_400xBoeing is to cut another 7,000 jobs as its losses mount in the pandemic.

The US planemaker, which had already announced deep cuts, said its staff would be down to just 130,000 by the end of next year - 20% down on the 160,000 it employed before the crisis.

The coronavirus pandemic and safety concerns about its 737 Max jet have contributed to a slump in orders.
