  • Don't go to Disneyland tomorrow!

    Besides it being very busy. Park hit capacity. The Cast Members are staging a sick out or to be more accurated a dependent out. Thanks to the next phase of presentism call dependant days for CRs are ending on November 13th. So Cast Members are calling off dependant as to not lose the days off. Some are also doing this as a protest to Disneyland breaking off negotiations with the 3 unions. So on top off record crowds we have no Cast at our locations. My area is even pulling people i.e. managers from TDA, Parking, entertainment, Tickets, custodial and other locations like DelivEars to fill positions. Expect another wave of seperations as CM fall victim to presentism or just quit.

      That is very interesting news. The staffing situation is becoming critical at the park. They should just bite the bullet and raise their pay scale to bring in more candidates.

          Aye, that they should.

          Too bad those corporate suits are too money-hungry.

            Adjusted for inflation, in the 70's and 80's, CMs were making $13-$18/hour. How sad that I'm making a paltry $8.32, even after this month's pay raise. My rate if I am training new CMs? $9.57. $9.57 is my incentive to train new CMs to do their job and do it well.

            Um?

              ok.. I won't go to Disney tomorrow... (maybe if DLR gets a payraise.. WDW will get another.. and justify me wanting to go to UCF.. ...)

                I think everyone, myself included, should walk off thier jobs and become Gas Company Executives...

                    You know, though, that if they raised the pay (which I'm totally for), that corporate would use that to justify another ticket price increase...
                    Not that they've ever needed a reason to justify a price increase, though...
                    Hey, can Disney be interrogated by the government, like the oil companies?

                        ugh...we arrive on sunday, and stay thru thursday...i sure hope the crowds thin out and the cast members come back to work by then....that would be a real bummer for us.

                          All I'm saying is that for $9.57, who cares if the CMs are well-trained to do their job? I make an extra $2.50 per day of training (after taxes) to point at things for them? UH? No incentive at all.

                          A passion and love for Disneyland can only streatch so far, and I fear I'm reaching my breaking point.

                          But now they've stuck me.. I have to suck it up through the holiday season, because if I get a job now it will be seasonal, and I can't afford to be jobless for a few weeks at the beginning of the year because I got fired from my seasonal position and no one is hiring after Xmas

                            I went anyway

                            No problems with CMs (that I could tell, I even hung out with a few CM friends).

                              Wouldnt it be more impacting if everyone showed up tommorrow with no CMS to run the place and then all the guest filed into City Hall and logged complaints????
