Many Cast Member Union Contracts at Walt Disney World expire this year affecting about half of the work force there. Backstage.com reports on ongoing negotiations between Actor’s Equity, which represents performers in the live productions at the florida resort, and park management.
The article reveals a very interesting detail about the park. The pay for Disney’s actors:
According to the union, the Disney agreement currently pays the following rates:
Chorus members receive $472.80 weekly and $11.82 hourly; chorus stepping out/principal roles pay $530 weekly and $13.25 an hour. The dance captain, lead, and fight captain increment is $150 weekly and $3.75 an hour.
Not a lot of money. But definately better than Poor ol’ Tigger earns.
