Over 25,000 current and former Disneyland cast members in August California theme park sued at high wages. The cast members claimed that according to a measure voted into law in the city of Anaheim in 2018, they should have received a raise of up to $15 an hour in 2018. However, a judge has ruled in Disneyland’s favor, which appears to be ending the cast. Members expect better pay, at least for now.
The suit argued that Disneyland Resort took advantage of the city’s subsidies at the time of Mickey and Friends. parking structure was built, and so the theme park was required to be followed by the city of Anaheim. Voters in the city approved Measure L back in 2018, which mandated that any company receiving the city’s subsidies was required to pay its employees a minimum of $15 an hour in 2018, up to $18 an hour by 2022. With the increase of , the additional cost of living on top of it adds up. The current Disneyland starting salary is about $16 an hour, but it didn’t increase to the $15 an hour this rule would require in the later year.
Although Orange County Register reports that Judge William Claster has now ruled that while Disneyland receives benefits working with the city, the agreement with both does not qualify as a subsidy, and therefore does not violate Disneyland Measure L.
The city of Anaheim took out a $550 municipal bond to finance the construction of the parking garage in question, so the city currently owns the garage, but leases it to Disneyland for $1 per year. Disneyland Resort The land on which the garage sits is also leased out for the same price.
Disneyland is in the process of paying back the municipal bond, and when it has done so, it will take full ownership of the garage. It’s a good deal for the park, which doesn’t need to pay to build the garage up front, and the lease deal works out well enough for all involved, but the judge’s ruling stated that since the settlement While technically not reducing the tax burden to Disney, it is not a subsidy, and so Disneyland is not subject to this rule.
Lawyers representing the artists have indicated that an appeal is likely, but time will tell if that actually happens. it’s a big blow Disneyland Cast Members, partly because the measurement L was specifically designed to assist them. Recent reports have indicated that many of those working in the parks are homeless and suffer from varying levels of food insecurity.
representation of unions Disneyland cast members are currently in talks to try to resort to a starting salary of $17 an hour, arguing that’s what other employers in the area are offering.
