If you’ve been following along with us, you will know that Disney is currently in intense union negotiations at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. It seems some progress may be made with Disneyland’s negotiations as it is being reported that Disney has agreed to raise Cast Member’s pay to $15 an hour.
The raise won’t come overnight but rather will be phased in over the next few years. Entry-level employees who are currently making $11 an hour will immediately see their pay increase to $13.25 an hour. Then, by 2020, Disneyland Cast Members will see that $15 an hour. This reflects a 36% increase in pay over a three year period. California currently has a law in place that would require employers to pay their employees $15 an hour by 2022.
Back in 2014, Walt Disney Company, CEO, Bob Iger, increased Walt Disney World Cast Member’s pay to $10 an hour.
Disneyland Park and California Adventure Park employs around 30,000 people in Anaheim, California.
