    Iger acts like he cares about the cast members trying to pass himself off as a Walt wannabe, but you have cast members struggling to survive living in their cars unable to provide for basic everyday needs all while Iger pulls a 60 million dollar bonus. Everybody who cares about Disney should watch Abigail Disney’s American Dream and Other Fairy Tales documentary to have their eyes opened about Iger and the treatment of Disney cast members.

      Disneyland has always paid poorly, from the beginning. That’s why there’s Unions, even though that was well after Walt died.
      Just think how bad it had to have been to get unions at WDW, in a virulently right to work state like Florida. Even now, everything I read leads me to think working at WDW is worse than Disneyland.
      I think it might also be what’s available. I could be wrong, but I suspect that a lot of the people working at Disneyland are middle-class and above kids that are able to live at home, while WDW casts a much broader net for employees, and Tampa isn’t nearly as well off as Orange County, CA.
