GET WOKE GO BROKE: Disney Slashing Up To 7,000 Jobs
Disney has ruined its own brand and is now suffering the consequences.
The companny embraced the woke left and now, many of the very people who would normally be going to their movies and visiting their theme parks are deserting them.
For decades, Disney was seen as a family friendly company. Now they seem intent on pushing a progressive agenda.
It’s already costing them in jobs.
Disney Cutting 7,000 Jobs, or 3% of Workforce, Eyes $5.5 Billion in Total Cost Reductions
Bob Iger is back as Disney’s CEO — and swinging the axe.
Disney will reduce its workforce by 7,000 employees in a bid to cut costs, Iger said Wednesday on the company’s earnings call for the year-end 2022 quarter. The figure represents 3.2% of Disney’s total headcount of about 220,000 worldwide as of Oct. 1, 2022.
The layoffs are part of Disney’s efforts to achieve about $5.5 billion in cost savings. Of that, $2.5 billion represents “non-content costs” (including labor costs) and $1 billion of those targeted cost-reductions are already underway, Iger said. Disney is aiming for an annualized reduction of $3 billion in non-sports content costs, expected to be realized over the next several years, Disney CFO Christine McCarthy told analysts.
Of the $2.5 billion in non-content expenses, about 50% represents marketing spending; 30% represents labor costs; and 20% represents technology, procurement and other expenses, McCarthy said. Disney expects those cost savings to “fully materialize” by the end of fiscal 2024.
Iger said he did not take the decision to cut jobs lightly. “I have enormous respect and appreciation for the dedication of our employees worldwide,” he said.
The company is doing this to themselves.
Disney just announced a 7500 employee layoff and a $5.5 billion budget cut.
If they want to keep doubling down on woke, that’s their choice. But, I hope they’re prepared to go broke. https://t.co/7mZqLyXrjC

Disney+ lost 2.3 million subscribers in Q1 of 2023
In just one week, DirectTV lost over 7 million customers
Both are good starts. Let’s continue to make their businesses suffer.

Perhaps the most disturbing business trend I’ve seen over the last 5 years is the destruction of childhood innocence by Disney and other woke corporations in an attempt to validate the extreme life choices of a few far left adults. pic.twitter.com/ntKksQjBNN

As long as Disney continues to push race and LGBT issues, they will continue to bleed
