Just noticed 2 different topics here at MiceChat,
that would seem very insulting to me, if I were a
cast member. And I'm sure many cast members
would feel somewhat aprehensive about posting
about such things on an open chat board, but the
number of "employees" DL is going through, is faster
than a roll of toilet paper being unrolled down DL Drive.
At first, the topics appear to be friendly like:
"Cast Member Appreciation" and "Ways to Improve Cast Member Moral"
But looking closer at these threads and you see comments like:
"I have never been a Cast Member but from what I understand
they get paid, it is obvious they DO NOT do it for the money."
and suggest that there must be other ways to retain employees
without paying them more.
To begin working for Disney there must be some attraction to the company
and/or the type of work they do, in creating that magic, and continuing the
legacy of Walt. And in return Disney should be creating a good working situation
for their employees/cast members.
But regardless, these people who work at creating the magic, face to face,
the one who maintain the cleanliness, and the ones who entertain, ARE REAL
WORKING PEOPLE ~ and People work, above and beyond ANY OTHER REASON,
is because they need the money to surrive. And without paying your employees
a livable working wage, you aren't going to be able to keep employees happy,
or to keep them at all.
Glossing over the pay issue is #1 Human Resource issue at DL, and
all these these topics that do it, are just pandering to the disasterous
way DL Human Resources is running things. To DL HR personnel, "pay"
appears to be just as invisible an issue, as invisible as that New President
of DL has been for nearly EIGHT MONTHS.
So, for the cast members of DL, what would be a reasonable $ per
Hour wage that DL Cast Members should be expecting, and keep cast
members. DL used to be proud of the cast members that have longevity
with DL. Unfortunately, that has turned drastically in the past decade,
What kind of salary does DL NEED to be offering all the employees on the
