WALT DISNEY WORLD REPLACES FIRED WORKERS WITH FOREIGN REPLACEMENTS
In its quest for more of the almighty dollar, the Powers to Be at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida; has been in the process of ordering their employees who operate the resort’s data processing to train new workers from foreign countries. Once the training sessions end, these veteran workers were given the pink slips before their jobs were handed over to the trainees. According to this New York Times article, Disney is not the only American corporation engaged in this labor practice. But I cannot help but wonder how Walt would have felt.
So far, only one U.S. Senator, a Democrat from Florida named Bill Nelson is interested in seeking inquiries into Disney's hiring practices.
