Jun. 11, 2015 Disney’s Goofy Layoffs

On June 3, 2015, Julia Preston of the New York Times wrote “Pink Slips at Disney. But First Training Foreign Replacements” about Disney letting go hundreds of tech worker employees and replacing them with younger, cheaper H-1B workers. Often the employees being let go are given a little more severance pay to train their replacements.

Companies like Infosys, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and HCL America supply cheap labor to companies like Microsoft, Facebook and Google. Conservative lobbying groups like The Partnership for a New American Economy promotes increasing H-1B visas and their leaders include Disney’s Robert Iger, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Rupert Murdoch of the News Corporation and Fox News.
