In the letter, it was stated that compensation of $20 an hour would be given to employees who stay throughout completion, as well as a $500 bonus as long as employees remain professional throughout their final shift. No hours are listed on Disney’s website after the 21st.


Wow! This news came out of nowhere. We’re a bit bummed, but we’re also wondering what could take its place. 👀
