Disney Heiress Speaks Out Against Disneyland’s Abuse of Workers

Abigail Disney, the heiress of the Disney fortune, is once again speaking out against the company’s unfair labor and wage practices.

She recently spoke to Disneyland employees in California, where they shared their experiences with the theme park’s work environment.

In the past, Abigail has criticized Disney CEO Bob Iger’s obscene salary and the drastic pay gap between Iger and other Disney employees.

Abigail also testified in May at the House Committee on Financial Services during a hearing on strengthening the rights and protections of workers.
