Variety reported on Monday about Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger hosting a fundraiser next week for six vulnerable Democrat senators. Although the story did point out the irony of Disney pushing for the tax cuts that every one of the senators voted against, it skipped the more controversial detail that the senators would be receiving money from a fundraiser hosted by an executive who pushed for replacing American Disney employees with H1B visa foreign workers. 

First let us go to the irony of a tax cut supporting company supporting senators who all opposed that tax cut in Bob Iger to Host Fundraiser for Vulnerable Democratic Senators in 2018 Midterms:

In case you forgot, Disney replaced many of their American IT employees with contracted foreign H1B visa holders who would work cheaper.

More lying to Congress that there are not enough people in America who can do the work.

A reminder of another part of this Disney American betrayal story is that Disney forced those American citizen employees to train their foreign replacements or forfeit their severance pay. I don’t do anything Disney, Disney Corp can kiss my American patriot ass.

Not entirely true. Disney outsourced the IT functions in question to an outside vendor and laid off their IT people once the transition was complete. It was the vendor who hired the H-1Bs.

Which is why I used the word "contracted."

It’s not just IT workers that Disney screws with. A friend’s daughter worked for Disney. Good job and she got to travel the world buying stuff to decorate their restaurants. But as soon as she was close to working long enough to get the benefits of a permanent employee, she was laid off. Apparently it was a common practice with them.

I visited Disneyworld in 1973 and have not been back. With good reason.
