Disney heiress calls out wage inequality at Walt Disney Company

Abigail Disney, the granddaughter of Roy Disney and grandniece of Walt Disney, is calling on Walt Disney Company executives to give their bonuses to some of the company's lowest-paid employees.

In an opinion piece for the Washington Post titled, "It’s time to call out Disney — and anyone else rich off their workers’ backs," Abigail Disney wrote how she seemed to strike a nerve with people over the weekend with a Twitter thread about the Disney company's wage inequality.

Before diving in too far, Disney pointed out that she speaks only for herself and no other members of her family.

She explained that she "had to speak out about the naked indecency" of CEO Bob Iger's pay. Disney pointed out that Iger reportedly made more than $65 million in 2018, which she said is 1,424 times the median pay of a typical Disney employee.
