US airport workers hit with layoffs amid COVID-19 outbreak

Many airport workers in US have been laid off until people start flying again and airports return to how they were before the coronavirus pandemic.

With most flights grounded, low-paid airport workers across the United States have been hit hard by layoffs.

Before the pandemic, they were fighting for a pay increase.

Now, those who remain, are facing years of financial hardship.
