Disney World employees laid off

    Cm are getting paid no layoffs have happen! Cps got let go bc they didnt know when they would come back! Summer they be leaving anyway and bc it was sooner they complain its a world wide health concern…. they could get rehired i know many whom were cps that came back and are still working… them expecting disney was going to pay em and help them find room and board is crazy! Your working for a major company to get a great job experience these things happen all over esp now and you take care of it all on your own! Thats what being an adult w a career does! Not complains to their job whose paying em… i feel bad for you i do just like 3rd party your tech not a disney employee but my heart goes out to you and everyone during this… stay safe!

    Where did you hear that part-time cast members are/ were laid off? I am one and have not heard this.

    Regular Part-time folks NOT laid off or furloughed and we DID get paid since closure … BUT there is indeed lot of misinformation and some rumors about folks being fired for also getting unemployment in addition to pay, even though tipped folks only get $5.70/hr and obviously do not have the tipped part of their compensation or were denied by FL because they are being paid … told you can always appeal … So Sea World furloughed their folks so they can get unemployment plus the Federal $600/ week … who knows if or how Disney tipped folks qualify for that either… the FL unemployment web site is ancient and says nothing about C-19 … still says look for other work, despite what Governor says to sound good but not where it counts the official site. The union is no better … some nearly generic guide they posted with almost no references … but some Stewards are trying to help with their posts on the Disney cast hub… maybe when pay ends in a couple weeks it will be clearer… but with a lot of folks cash poor in the mean time.
