Disney will furlough more employees in California due to restrictions

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

A lobbying group representing Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and other California theme parks says COVID-19 reopening guidelines issued by Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration will “sentence” laid off and furloughed workers to “poverty.” The California Attractions and Parks Association said in a statement that the decision to place the state’s large theme parks in the most-restrictive tier of Newsom’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy will keep the major tourist destinations closed indefinitely.

I'm not surprised. The protests in front of Disneyland weren't enough to stop the furloughs.

That's weird. I totally expected Disney to go "gosh, ok, we won't furlough anyone" after seeing protesters in front of the park.

Perhaps a change.org petition would help?

That's a CBuzz meme. Did it make the list?

Indeed. Sadly, the petition I created is long gone.
