NO LOVE AT DISNEY PARKS & RESORTS DIVISION

 Am I Next? Disney Parks Layoffs

Responding to a blogger and the rumors of “thousands of layoffs” at Walt Disney’s Parks and Resorts division, Disney confirmed that at least 145 employees will be losing their jobs in the coming months. According to a company spokesperson “Disney does not expect the layoffs to affect guests, as the jobs being cut are not customer-facing and will come from several back-of-house operations. The jobs cut are part of a restructuring to realign with future needs and priorities.” Disney/ABC TV Group and ESPN has already started their layoffs to implement a restructuring program to respond to future consumer trends. Which makes perfect sense as salaried employees have a greater lasting impact on te bottom line than hourly part-timers.
