  1. Union negotiation for pay increases likely ended up getting more people fired than would have if they werent scheduled to get an increase.

    • You may be right, Mike, but these negotiations took place over two years ago. Nobody knew this pandemic and Disneyland’s shutdown were coming when the agreement was reached.

      I probably am not allowed to link to a source on that but if you want evidence that I’m not making this up, search “Disneyland to raise wages” in your search engine of choice and you’ll see several articles about it dated July 27, 2018.
