[QUOTE=jk8;1058054]Hmm, interesting. I wonder what they do get paid. If you think about the jobs that are retail, fast food, etc. they don’t get paid much elsewhere either.
I don’t have enough information to say anything for or against this, but I would assume just because it is Disney they should not make more than the same job in the Orlando area.
I hope regardless some resolution for all involved is found. :mickey:[/QUOTE]
Base starting salary for most Disney advertised CM jobs ranges from $7.50 to $10.50.
You must remember that most of the jobs at the parks do not require anything but on the job training. The salaried positions will pay higher as they are looking for a certain skill set, college degree and/or job experience. That some expect to live off the salary of a CM on a ride or other basic skill job is crazy at best. But ya gotta love unions. They will try every trick.
The big disadvantage the union has is that there are plenty of applications for postions, even during the good economic times a few years back. And the other parks pay scales are very close to Disney’s.
