    Would you pay $1 more if it went to the CMs?

    We all know that the Cast Members don't make enough to survive. Would you pay $1 more for everything if it went to give Cast Member a living wage?

    $1.00 more on everything in the Park? Not too sure I'd go for that one. That could lost me a lot in one day....

    Quite frankly, I have a difficult time with the concept, as Disney raises the prices of a single day ticket about $3-$5 or so a year (or so it seems) anyway...

    With the prices they charge, and the hefty profit margins they have on most everything they sell in the parks...

    Wouldn't it make more sense to put pressure of Disney to get rid of some of the people in TDA, and elsewhere in their seemingly bloated management structure, and use that money to pay the CM's better?

    On topic - I vote "no".
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    IF it was only on one thing like admission and IF it would go directly to the CM's then yes. They do put up with a lot. A lot of MiceChatters were or are CM's. My daughter was a CM. Granted not all CM's are perfect, just like not all human beings are perfect but they do still deserve more than what they start out making.

    No, I wouldn't...DL is an entry level job that requires no skills and no previous training. It is not meant to be a job one can "live" on.

    Sounds like taxes to me. ("Let's raise taxes to save the education system." I am in education and I know how much waste there is and how much doesn't go to the classrooms). Sounds good in theory, but why doesn't Disney just allocate their finances so that CM's get what they deserve in the first place.

    This is a little harsh. It does require skills. People skills at the very least and not everyone has people skills.
    "He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them. But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side; if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion" --John Stuart Mill

    If Disney were to allow the CMs to put up tip boxes at loading platforms or where ever they work I'd happily tip them for service rendered. But give money to Bob Iger and trust him to pay it out to the CMs? No way. It'd disappear down the rabbit hole and the CMs would never see a dime of it and still get treated like KAK.

    Funny thing is once the State minimum wage goes up the CMs will be working for minimum wage. Let's see if TDA can fill those openings then.
    IMO - YMMV - FYIGM
