(LA Progressive) -- Bernie! Bernie! Bernie!” came the chants of the union crowd at the #StopDisneyPoverty rally this weekend, when the Coalition of Resort Labor Unions (CRLU), a group of 11 Disneyland unions, packed the Anaheim River Arena.
Over a thousand union members and supporters joined Bernie in demanding the “Happiest Place on Earth” not treat its low-paid workers so miserably. Energized for a possible 2020 Presidential run, the former ever-popular presidential candidate scorned Disney for its wage gap—$400 million for its CEO and minimum wage for too many Disneyland employees.
