It's "business-as-usual" here in the United Corporations of America - the rich get richer and everyone else watches TV.

The executives should give up as much bonus as possible. The $1.5bn bonuses is in incentives as well which could include stocks and bonds they can't give up in any way for several years.

Disney has trully become a vile company. They are dead set on destroying the IPs we grew to love and keep making terrible business decisions regarding their parks and staff. I could only wish this propaganda outlet to go bankrupt
