Mickey Mouse is laying off hundreds, as are the other Theme Parks.
Many of their jobs are part-time and go to seniors and retired veterans.
They also employ many students during the holidays.
Quote from Orlando Sentinel:
"The Walt Disney Co. on Wednesday said it would eliminate an undisclosed number of jobs as part of a sweeping corporate overhaul at its domestic resorts, which includes plans to combine back-office operations at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.
Disney would not say how many jobs it intends to cut or how much money it expects to save through the moves. The company employs about 80,000 people at its U.S. resorts, including 62,000 in Central Florida."
Add to that the many who have lost their jobs in real estate, timeshare, tourism....Americans who were born here are finding it very hard to find work.
There was an ex-CEO on TV News yesterday, he lost his job and his home and is now a pizza delivery man......times are hard.....
