30% Pay Raise for Bob Iger in 2010

29 Jan

I wish that every Disney Cast  Member could receive a pay raise even half of that which Bob Iger was awarded in 2010. Here’s what the AP just reported:

Walt Disney Co. has awarded CEO Bob Iger a 2010 pay package valued at $28 million, up 30 percent from a year ago, according to an Associated Press analysis of data disclosed in a regulatory filing on Friday. The company said it is rewarding the 59-year-old Iger for excellent management in a tough economic environment.

I don’t think I even have to tell you that the current “best and final” offer from Disney to the the union that represents many WDW Cast Members doesn’t have anywhere near a 30% pay raise for anybody in 2011. Detailed examples of wage increases are here. The union also has a blog with updates on negotiations.

And say, any of my friends in Florida got a little free time on Wednesday, February 9, say from 5pm-7pm? The union is having a rally at Cross Roads. Hold a sign for me, wouldya?
