Backs Hate

Sat on Trump’s Business Council; major workers’ rights abuses by Disney subcontractors; major opponent of paid sick day legislation

Ties To The Administration

CEO Iger was formerly a member of Trump’s Business Council

Iger refused shareholders’ calls to withdraw, saying: "I think there is an opportunity, when you are in the room where it happens, to express opinions I believe would be in the best interest of the company and its shareholders.”

Profiting From Trump's Agenda?

Stands to gain from Trump’s anti-workers’ rights agenda. Disney has a history of being hostile toward employee unions, has faced criticism for the international and U.S. labor practices of its subcontractors, and has been a major corporate opponent to the campaign to enact paid sick days laws. Disney has been criticized for violations of wage and hour laws, violations of workplace safety laws, and for employment discrimination. If Trump’s Department of Labor is underfunded or if enforcement of wage and hour law is not a priority of the administration, the company could continue to violate these laws and pocket the money that should have gone to workers.

Our Demands

  1. Issue a clear statement denouncing Trump’s anti-immigrant, -refugee, and -Muslim agenda, and act to stop Trump’s wall and immigration dragnet;

  2. Publicly advocate for mandatory paid sick leave legislation; and

  3. Commit immediately to paying all Disney employees a minimum of $15 per hour.
