'Member when only SEAS was getting slammed for doing something like this? Throw Disney on the pile I guess.In a Twitter thread Tuesday, the outspoken family heiress slammed Disney's decision to furlough theme park employees after the company paid dividends to shareholders and gave executives big bonuses. Disney hasn't revealed dividend plans for 2020, and the company's top executives took substantial pay cuts because of Covid-19.
The Walt Disney Co. announced earlier this month it's furloughing employees "whose jobs aren't necessary at this time." The coronavirus pandemic has forced a major chunk of Disney's businesses to temporarily suspend operations, including its parks, resorts and entertainment productions. More than 75% of the company's 223,000 employees work for the Parks and Products division.
