    Disney to turn over some jobs to service company
    The first workers to greet many tourists at Walt Disney World will soon be some other company's employees.

    Disney World plans to turn over at least 167 bell, valet and baggage service jobs to an outside company in January. The jobs will go to Baggage Airlines Guest Service (BAGS,) the company that already runs Disney's Magical Express, the service that transports Disney's visitors to and from Orlando International Airport.

    This quote right here is why Unions are out of control:

    ""Comparable: that's going to be the magic question," Condo responded. "And why are they doing it in the first place? To save money. That's why we are going to fight this.""

    Fighting the very company their employees work for to not save money? That's his concern - not that his represented workers will be offered other jobs. Unions blow. Let the government set the minimum standards and regulations, then let the open market determine wages and benefits.

    Imagine your hotel room being cleaned by a telecomuter from India... No wonder why Disney is so interested in ASIMO.
