Disney’s Part-Time Future

The Orlando Sentinel has an indepth look at Disney World’s trend away from hiring Full-Time Employees.  It saves the company money on OT pay, health care costs and other benefits. But will it cost the company in the long run as the quality of its workers could be affected by turnover and lack of commitment to the  usually high Disney standards.

This is not just something Disney is doing. It’s a national trend as well. A few years ago there was talk about how the USA would become a leisure society with work weeks of 32-35 hours a week. I don’t think anyone expected those jobs to be on the low end of the pay scale, however.
