I enjoyed reading about the history of the company, especially things that I hadn't read about before. I didn't know that male managers were paid $300 per week but the women who were doing the painting were only paid $50 per week. There was also a strike in 1941 to protest working conditions and wages. We all think that working for Disney is bright and sunny but at that time it was not.
I found this article especially interesting because I worked for Disney on a temporary basis about 12 years ago. I worked for the catalog order department during Christmas time. My experience was a very good one. I was treated well and paid well. I actually really enjoyed it there. Hopefully things will stay the same as the company grows and the strike in 1941 set things on the right road.
