Disney heiress Abigail Disney says CEO Bob Iger compensation is “crazy”

Abigail Disney does not ask for a fairy tale ending for the thousands of people working at the company that her grandfather founded. But the Disney heir believes workers who clean the bathroom at the company's amusement parks should not fight when the guy on top rakes – in her opinion – a "crazy" amount or $ 65.6 million in executive compensation years. The grandson of Roy Disney questioned Disney CEO Bob Igers generous pay package at an event last Thursday and then followed up her thinking in a series of tweets over the weekend. Saying that she likes Iger, was not involved in Walt Disney's business and did not speak to other family members, Abigail Disney tweeted that "with any objective action, a wage relationship is over a thousand insane".

Abigail Disney does not ask for a fairy tale ending for the thousands of people working at the company that her grandfather founded. But the Disney heir believes workers who clean the bathroom at the company’s amusement parks should not fight when the guy on top rakes – in her opinion – a “crazy” amount or $ 65.6 million in executive compensation years.

The grandson of Roy Disney questioned Disney CEO Bob Igers generous pay package at an event last Thursday and then followed up her thinking in a series of tweets over the weekend. Saying that she likes Iger, was not involved in Walt Disney’s business and did not speak to other family members, Abigail Disney tweeted that “with any objective action, a wage relationship is over a thousand insane”.

Walt Disney’s senior executives were able to waive half of their remuneration and did not see any impact on their living standards, with the money spent better among the company’s more than 200,000 abigail disney employees arguing for social media.

“The one who contributes to the success of a profitable business and who works full time to do so should not get hungry, should not ransom insulin and not have to sleep in a car,” the activist tweeted and Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker tweeted.

It is not the first time the Disney heir has advocated at the expense of underpaid workers. A member of patriotic millionaires, an activist group supporting higher taxes on the rich, she expressed opposition to the GOP tax levy in a 2017 video. She recently told the New York newspaper that she has given away about $ 70 million over the past 30 years and that she is “convinced of what wealth is doing to people”.

Walt Disney Co. Defended Iger’s compensation as “90 percent performance-based”, with a spokesman saying in an email, the CEO “delivered exceptional value to the shareholders.” The company now pays a start-up wage of $ 15 in Disneyland in Anaheim, California, investing in a training program to help its employees, the spokesman emailed.

Workers at the amusement park had rallied last year for higher “living wages” at $ 20 an hour.
