Uber to focus on core rides, delivery business as it cuts 23% of workforce amid coronavirus crisis

Uber will cut a total of 6,700 jobs, including the 3,700 it had announced earlier this month, CEO Khosrowshahi said, adding that the company plans to reduce investments in several "non-core projects."
The company's initial wave of 3,700 layoffs affected less-costly customer support and recruiting teams, while Monday's announcement affects 3,000 employees across nearly all departments.
Khosrowshahi said Uber must establish itself as a self-sustaining enterprise no longer in need of outside capital, calling the company's food delivery business Uber Eats the "next enormous growth opportunity."
