Daimler may need to cut more jobs than announced

Daimler will need to cut more jobs than the 15,000 previously announced, the company’s head of human resources told German news agency DPA in an interview.

While he did not want to give an exact number of jobs that would need to be eliminated, Wilfried Porth said the figure was higher than 15,000, and was necessary for the Mercedes-Benz maker to avoid operational layoffs in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
