Disney says no to healthcare for their workers?

Apparently Disney wants their workers to pay for their own health care.  There is a sentiment in the community that the workers are already marginalized with low wages and that it doesn’t make sense for Disney to say that they have no budget to pay for healthcare.

I was over there the other day for a meeting at lunch and the lines were huge even at mid-day.  So even in the recession we are in Disney appears to be doing very well.

There will be a protest at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel on Thursday, August 14th,at 4:30pm.  Here are the details regarding the protest:

1600 S. Disneyland Drive
4:30pm — Picket Line at the Paradise Pier Hotel
5:00pm – March from Paradise Pier Hotel to the Front Entrance of Disney (intersection of Harbor Blvd. and Disneyland Dr.).
6:00 pm — Action in front of Disneyland Entrance
Parking: Park at Downtown Disney Parking (3 Hours free) and then walk to the Paradise Pier Hotel. If you are arriving later that 5pm, then park at Downtown Disney and walk through the downtown walkway to the front of the Disneyland entrance on Harbor, and meet the marchers there.
