Mickey Mouse Arrested along with Cinderella, Snow White, and More
I understand if people are upset about wages and benefits and that they want to make a point, but did they have to wear the costumes? Is that going to help them get better wages? I guess it does embaress Disney, but think about the kids.
Yes, you read the title write. Disney workers dressed up in their costumes were arrested yesterday during a union demonstration.
Mickey Mouse, Cinderella, Snow White, and Peter Pan were among 32 costumed protesters arrested in the hour-long march from one of three Disney-owned hotels at Disneyland in California.
Disney said it is in negotiations with the union and nothing has been finalized. The workers’ contract expired in February and their union says Disney’s latest proposal makes health care unaffordable and creates an unfair two-tier wage system.
Before the arrests, the picketers marched and chanted outside Paradise Pier, holding signs that read, ‘Disney is unfaithful,’ and ‘Mickey, shame on you.’
