Walt Disney World’s least wage is $15/hr and Disney’s offer you that incorporated a $1/hr yearly increase for the up coming four yrs has was rejected by 96% of users very last thirty day period.

From the letter that was sent to Workforce Customers from President & Chief Working Officer, Common Orlando Resort, Karen Irwin, it knowledgeable of the wage boost as very well as a checklist of even more improvements which involve the elevation of the 401K match and tuition reimbursement packages, added compassionate leave, doubled parental go away, increased relatives arranging added benefits and ticket availability. We also see that Common are upgrading split places and restrooms and have plans to increase Workforce Member dining.
Picture: Universal Now, if right evaluating Common to Disney, it appears that Disney is not valuing its Solid Users as a great deal as Common are valuing their Crew Users in conditions of spend as they have only proposed a $1/hr raise, bringing the base fee to $16/hr when compared to the $17/hr foundation level Universal has promised productive June 4.
If even so, Disney agreed to the $18/hr minimal wage the STCU is inquiring for, this would then be $1/hr bigger than the agreed sum that Universal Staff Users are promised.
We are really conscious of Disney’s efforts beneath the helm of CEO Bob Iger of price tag cutting but Solid Member fork out absolutely should not be an place that feels the pinch. We are hoping that Disney can concur a good arrangement with STCU on Solid Member pay back for the future.
