Bernie Sanders has a new idea to give all of Disney Studios 200,000 employees a “middle-class wage.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
 

“What would be truly heroic is if Disney used its profits from ‘Avengers’ to pay all of its workers a middle-class wage, instead of paying its CEO Bob Iger $65.6 million,” he tweeted.

 

Bernie Sanders, the Democratic senator from Vermont and presidential candidate, on Monday said the Walt Disney Co. should use profits from box office hit franchise Avengers, whose latest installment, Avengers: Endgame, brought in $1.2 billion worldwide in a record-breaking opening weekend, to pay all its employees “a middle-class wage.”

Sanders has regularly criticized Disney, in the summer lauding unionized Walt Disney World Resort workers after they got a $15 minimum wage in negotiations with the Hollywood giant. 

Roy Disney’s granddaughter Abigail earlier this month said Disney chairman and CEO Iger’s compensation “is insane” and called on the company to shift “some of the profits” to rank-and-file employees. “There’s a point at which there’s just too much going around the top of the system into this class of people who — I’m sorry this is radical — have too much money,” she argued.

In March, Disney said it would decrease Iger’s base salary by $500,000 after its merger with 21st Century Fox.
