According to the Orlando Hotel and Restaurant Workers Movement Facebook page, some Walt Disney World Cast Members will be receiving a pay raise next month.
Disney will implement the pay raise on October 4. Food & Beverage Cast Members will receive a $1 raise from $13 to $14 an hour. Housekeeping Cast Members will go from $15 to $16 an hour. Any worker who earns above the minimum pay will get a raise of 75 cents. This pay raise was already a work in progress in the contracts before the closure of the theme parks due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This news comes just after thousands of Cast Members learned of furlough extensions possibly through November. Cast Members were recently lining up in the early morning for a food bank organized by Unite Here 737. Most Walt Disney World entertainment is remaining closed indefinitely and several attractions, restaurants, and hotels have no confirmed reopening date.
