The employees who kept the data systems humming in the vast Walt
Disney fantasy fief did not suspect trouble when they were
suddenly summoned to meetings with their boss.
While families rode the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and searched for
Nemo on clamobiles in the theme parks, these workers monitored
computers in industrial buildings nearby, making sure millions of
Walt Disney World ticket sales, store purchases and hotel
reservations went through without a hitch. Some were performing so
well that they thought they had been called in for bonuses.
Instead, about 250 Disney employees were told in late October that
they would be laid off.
What a dick move. I expect better from Disney.
