Comcast Giving $1000 Bonuses To "Front Line" Employees

#21
I am full time salaried team member with Universal in Orlando and can 100% confirm that Universal is giving its team members this bonus. Just another example of how much better Universal treats its employees than disney does. I left last year and have never looked back.
Does this bonus only apply to salaried employees? I am a server on Citywalk, and a "Casual" employee. I have been an employee since november of last year.

Not UO PR department, just a team member who's worked for the company for awhile and has been approved OT during those seasons.

I am glad I was wrong and very happy for the employees. It is now time for Disney to step up and do the same thing, thanks to the tax cut.
Rumors of this first broke back in October...way BEFORE the tax cut decision. While the timing of the bonus makes it look that way, the decision was due to the recent Comcast/NBC Universa restructure.

Rumors were based on the tax cut coming. Comcast and the other companies clearly say the money for these bonuses come from lower taxes. In other words by letting companies keep more of their money, it allows for the to have more money to give to their employees. This is basic economics.
