Management holds face cards in Disneyland labor dispute

March 21, 2006, 10:01 AM · The deadline for a new union contract at Disneyland has passed, but, according to Al Lutz, management seems to hold little fear of a strike. One of the many factors working in management's favor? Since Disney shuttered its old parking lot, where would the picket lines go?

Of course, the big issue -- seemingly ignored by both sides -- remains money. It won't make much difference to either workers or visitors if Disney busts the union since the union seems content to let Disney get away with a below-market wage scale. Eight-some bucks an hour won't buy you a Disney-caliber workforce in Southern California anymore, no matter how few hours a week someone needs to work to earn benefits.

I love Disney and would not consider working anywhere else if I lived in So. Cal., regardless of the pay issues.
