    Disney Workers to Get Pay Raise

    Disney has reached a deal to raise the minimum wage for its employees.

    (Published Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018)

    Walt Disney World will begin paying a starting wage of $15 an hour in less than three years if a new agreement is approved by workers next month.

    The company and a coalition of unions reached the tentative deal late Friday after a year of negotiations.

    Disney's unionized workers will vote in early September on the proposal to raise the starting minimum wage from $10 to $15 an hour by 2021.

    The deal covers about half of Disney World's 70,000 workers in metro Orlando.

    If approved, it could have a big impact in the theme park mecca since Disney tends to influence what other Orlando tourism businesses pay their workers.
