SAD TRUTH ABOUT DISNEYLAND EMPLOYEESDate: 2018-09-11
The New York Times recently covered a story about the pressing issues of minimum wage for Disneyland employees who are struggling to get by or even pay rent.
The biggest misconception about all the Disneyland employees is that they get paid well, however nearly 75% of Disneyland employees who were questioned for a survey said they can't afford basic living expenses. Glynanna is a concierge at Disneyland and is one of the thousands of workers standing up to Disney and demanding a living wage. A vote on a ballot for Anaheim residents to pay workers $18 by 2022 will be held on the 7th November 2018.
One of 10 people who work at Disneyland are homeless or living in their cars or something of the sort. Rebekah Pederson is a licensed cosmetologist working at Disneyland in a beauty corner getting paid $13 p/h, forcing her to live in her car. One Disney Employee states; "If they make so much money, it's because of their employees".
If Disney can pay its CEO over $400mill in a four year period, it has enough money to pay its workers says the Stop Disney Poverty Campaign.
