Disneyland to pay its California workers $15 an hour

Unions representing almost 10,000 workers at Disney's theme park in Anaheim accepted a three-year contract to raise the wages incrementally. Subsequently, hourly wages will increase to $15 in January and rise further to $15.45 in mid-June 2020, Disneyland said. The deal immediately raises their pay 20% to $13.25 an hour.

Disney said an employee making $11 today would earn an additional $8,000 a year. This will raise Disneyland's wages to $15 an hour three years before the state of California's mandatory wage increase. It covers union workers in Disneyland jobs like attractions, store operations, custodial, costume, and transportation and parking.

Congratulations to the courageous workers and their unions at Disneyland for their wonderful victory.

James described the series to the outlet, saying: "This show is real, it's candid and it's the essence of conversation". James has brought an air of excitement back to Los Angeles and the Lakers' arrow is undeniably pointing up again.

Under the new contract, the minimum hourly pay will be raised to $15 per hour in January for food service workers, custodians, retail workers, ride operators, and other workers who keep the park running for its 18 million visitors per year-who bring in billions of dollars in revenue annually.

The agreement follows drawn out negotiations between the company and the unions that had prompted workers to plan a protest over unfair wages.

The labor fight got a public boost from Vermont Sen. As of now, no pay increase has been finalized in Orlando.
