  1. I see why there have been so many incidents of fighting at the parks – this multi-billion dollar corporation is paying ‘Security’ $16.50 an hour? They’d make more at Target stocking shelves. How does Chapek get away with these poverty level pay rates? We are all being robbed blind by him, and he can’t even pay these Cast Members more than $20/hour?
