Disney Announced these numbers today. 900 Positions eliminated and 500 positions will be replaced park wide. Not demeaning this large number of unemployed people, but there is still over 60,000 positions still filled, so it could be worse. I'm not sure how many of this number went on to different positions within the company.

I lost a couple good friends in upper management, because of this (one i at least know took a lower paying job at AKL) so it is sad to read such a high number, yet at the same time i'm glad that it wasn't higher.

I wonder why they are just now reporting this. These layoffs are from last week. Did Disney just get around to releasing the numbers this week?

I believe Disney's 2nd quarter just ended so it makes sense for these numbers to only now be coming out.

Yes; for large corporations, it's only after quarters end that things like this get reported.

It's a shame to hear this. I just went for a job interview in November. I was first supposed to go in Februari, but they moved me up. Am i glad that happened. I got a job at Disney (college program) and a few months later, Disney really started to the feel the crisis.

I really feel for those people, because even in November I was scared to death about them deciding not to take me anyway.
