Walt Disney World made headlines earlier this week by closing for only the 5th time in history as Hurricane Irma moved through the Southeast. With its closure many of the Disney cast members were set to lose out on a large part of their paycheck for the week.
Yesterday Disney announced that they had decided to pay all cast members (both non-unionized and unionized) for their lost shifts on Sunday and Monday due to Hurricane Irma.
This follows Disney’s decision to donate $2.5 million to aid in humanitarian relief efforts to those impacted by Hurricane Irma across the Caribbean and Florida. The donation will support the disaster response and recovery efforts of the American Red Cross, UNICEF, Save the Children, and other nonprofit organizations.
