EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM) The company hired by the city of Eureka to operate electric scooter rentals in the hopes of boosting local tourism and shopping is laying off nearly a quarter of its staff.

About 140 of Bird Scooter’s 600¬†workers will lose their jobs. The company says the job cuts won’t impact operations in the 400 cities, including Eureka where it currently does business.
