Why is the heiress to Disney protesting her own company? Are theme park employees treated that badly? According to this article apparently they don't even have money for basic necessities...Anyone from Disney know what it's like working at Disneyland/world?

    They're treated pretty bad. 6 strikes and you're out. Strikes for stuff like colored nails, hair too long, late to work by a few minutes, etc.

    Her intentions are good. But Employees are being paid above minimum wage. I don’t know where she’s getting that data. If Abigail wants to make a difference, why don’t she put her money first? It will make her complain more feasible, instead of just ranting to Bob Iger about it. Iger made her wealthy.

    It’s not “her company” for one thing, and I guess she’s protesting because she feels like people aren’t making enough for their contributions, although I would characterize her “research” into the problem as highly anecdotal. It may be accurate but I don’t think talking to a few people when you don’t know the specifics of their own personal financial obligations is a good way to judge whether the company is paying them adequately or not.

    So as a current cast member I can say the answer is a little complicated. We put up with a lot from Guests and management but i can confidently say this is the easiest job someone can have. Plus its close to impossible to get fired since almost all departments are Union. And it’s uncommon to get paid under the minimum wage here.

    What I’ve seen is that most cast don’t have any aspirations of moving up or advancing their life whatsoever. This company has a lot of opportunity for growth if you want it you just need to work for it.

    I’d say what she found is anecdotal and I don’t take it seriously.

    She had no input into the fortune she inherited so she’s irrelevant.
