The global pandemic has affected many in the past year. Even those who worked for theme parks and resorts are finding themselves financially strained as a result of job loss. Now a group of former part-time Disney Cast Members are trying to circulate a new petition in hopes that Disney will listen.
The former Cast Members are asking Disney if they could let them keep their employee discounts and park privileges for a while longer. It’s been a rough adjustment after being laid off and they believe having their benefits extended will help Disney as well. Those interested in signing the petition can click here.
The actual text of the petition is found below:
We as the Cast Members of The Walt Disney Company have been torn from everything we know because of COVID-19. We understand fully, that during these hard times, The Walt Disney Company, had to make the tough decision to lay off most of their PT Cast Members. No one deserves any of this hardship that is happening right now in the world. It doesn’t take any money from the pockets of The Walt Disney Company to let the “laid off” PT Cast Members keep their Park Admission privileges and discounts throughout the Parks and Resorts. If nothing else, it can bring more money into the Parks and Resorts as Cast Members are always purchasing food and merchandise. We are asking The Walt Disney Company to make the right decision and let the affected Cast Members keep their “Blue ID’s” until call back rights are expired.
