Committed to myself

I was in the last group of furloughs and for the first few days afterwards I was hesitant on whether I should stick it out or move on. But I had to ask myself, who should I be more committed too? So I started sending out my resume and got some... —  read more

Disney Lobbyists

Hopefully Disney's high-paid lobbyists, both state and federal, are pushing for more "emergency" civid-related unemployment. Cast members need it desperately. For example, I will not have rent money this month.

Let Us Know

I hope that Disney lets us know something before the holidays. Many of us will be needing to find a new place to live by November/December. With Federal UI ending, thousands of cast members will be in dire straits.

FURLOUGH = not enough income

With so many people on furlough, for most unemployment is not enough while we wait for callbacks. Some are fortunate if they are a 2+ income family, but there are others like myself who rely on a single paycheck to support our own families. I am... —  read more 

This will be bad

The number of people slated for layoffs sometime in near future keeps growing every time we get any morsel of information on what's coming. Disney really should be more transparent when it comes to layoffs. Some of us understand that cuts are... —  read more

Disney Apps

Disney should really look at if it wants to stay in the kids app business. None of the apps are in the top 200. Those that are newly created or revised stay in the top 200 for a few weeks since purchasers soon realize the numerous technical issues... —  read more 

Info sources on Cuts

I hear all these rumors of layoffs coming but haven’t heard anything from management. Will this affect corporate jobs or those working in the Parks themselves ? I’m thinking if they lay-off now, a year from now they’re going to be hurting for... —  read more

Still Hurting

Many Walt Disney World salaried Sales, Marketing, Finance, HR and Technology are still furloughed, and considering they’ve done without us for 14 weeks we will likely be laid off permanently. Hopefully they make that decision soon because without the... —  read more
