    2020 Election Thread

    I mean, I get it, I do. But I also worked in a department that was 90% men, and more left of center then right of center leaning (as a majority), and they’ve all said far grosser things to me (a woman). And you better believe I gave it right back to them and made more than one blush quite often...

    Politics 28000 Layoffs coming to Disney's domestic theme parks - statement from Josh D'Amaro

    I normally agree with many of your sentiments, but I’m not totally on board with you here. Server roles are Disney are often hard to get into (long waiting lists, must have experience), because the pay is good. Not the Disney pay, but the tipping. I was once on a cast bus back to the CM parking...

    Politics 28000 Layoffs coming to Disney's domestic theme parks - statement from Josh D'Amaro

    The full-timers are okay for now, I think. Many (maybe most? all? Not sure...) part-timers were let go today, though.

    Politics Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    There’s some middle-of-the-roaders in both 3 and 4, too. I think there’s a fair number of people who would go to Disney if they didn’t require masks outdoors (unless in an area where social distancing isn’t possible) but kept the requirements when indoors and when on attractions. I think there’s...

    Politics 28000 Layoffs coming to Disney's domestic theme parks - statement from Josh D'Amaro

    Those are one that people choose to do and usually have to apply for. Not something people are forced to do. (Aside from temporary relocations like the workers at a closed water park, for example. But those are typically only for a month or two.)

    Politics 28000 Layoffs coming to Disney's domestic theme parks - statement from Josh D'Amaro

    When I was part-time, I often worked more than 40 hours a week. However, you can’t just say, “hey, I worked full-time hours this week, give me benefits!” You have to work more than X number of hours (I believe it is 32 for Disney, if memory serves correctly) consistently over a period of time. I...

    White supremacists plotted to kidnap Governor of MI, start civil war

    To be fair, I call them ALL idiots on both sides. I mean, in my first post, I called the failed kidnappers “idiots,” and I called the rioters “people.” But you’re right, I should be more careful with my language so as to be more clear. They’re all idiots.

    White supremacists plotted to kidnap Governor of MI, start civil war

    I was just about to post this too. I’m no Trump fan (he’s an @**hole, I can’t stand listening to him speak, and I definitely didn’t vote for him), but not everything is his fault.

    White supremacists plotted to kidnap Governor of MI, start civil war

    Wait, one random group of idiots fails at kidnapping someone, and that’s a bigger threat than the thousands of people in multiple cities across the country that have caused millions of dollars (if not more) in damage to businesses and property, and yes, have actually physically hurt, and in some...

    Politics 28000 Layoffs coming to Disney's domestic theme parks - statement from Josh D'Amaro

    I personally know 8 managers laid off (edited to add: so far). Two were in a department where all the managers, aside from their boss, were laid off. Maybe we don’t here about those so much because there’s not union spokesperson for middle management? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Either way, there’s definitely...

    On layoffs, very bad attendance, and Iger's legacy being one of disgrace

    Says you. It IS miserable for some. It’s all I notice even when I’m in an air conditioned store for 30 minutes. No way I would survive Disney with a mask on all day, especially in the heat. But here’s a cookie for you being a superior human being, I guess? 🍪🤷🏻‍♀️

    Politics 28000 Layoffs coming to Disney's domestic theme parks - statement from Josh D'Amaro

    That was my department, and it certainly sounds as though most, if not all, were let go today. I think some still may have not been called, but tomorrow is another day. The general feel is the department is no more.

    Politics 28000 Layoffs coming to Disney's domestic theme parks - statement from Josh D'Amaro

    I got the call today, unfortunately. I was only seasonal, so no super huge loss for me money-wise, but I did have 11 total years with the company. Sad to see it end this way. Many part-timers in my department were also let go. Without being too specific, we were in a non-unionized...

    News Disney updates its legendary Four Keys model to include a fifth key

    No, to make sure they don’t get “canceled.” Silence is violence, you know.
