I would describe Disney as magical and fun and fantasy my name is Glenn Dina shoveling and I’m 58 years old General most 30 years which will be a big anniversary for me is it fun is it a great job yes but the biggest misconception is that were paid well I’m not as well as some of us are food insecure I usually wait and eat my lunch around 3:30 and that’s my first meal of the day 1 out of 10 of us are homeless and some sort in the last two years some of us are sleeping in her car so I’ve done that a couple of times I would describe Disneyland of the happiest place on Earth it is definitely one of the best jobs I’ve ever had it’s just a shame that no one can survive on it I never thought especially being a license apologist that I would ever be having to sleep in my car especially not for a company like Disney and I’ve not excited for when my client and see that I’ve been homeless you know cuz it doesn’t say anything of still level at all I never quite envisioned it would be this Grand or this great incorporation like this thing has enough money to pay its CEO over 400 million dollars in a 4-year. Well has enough money to pay its workers I just don’t understand Disney be better by taking care of us on November 6th Oprah living wait enough is enough me and 1988 was able to afford a one-bedroom apartment it is now 2018 and I’m sleeping on the condo with 5 other people when they find out that I work at Disney as a hairstylist doing these way they assume I’m getting paid at least 30 an hour but we absolutely do not to Bob Iger we love our jobs just pay us right you know we just want to survive
