The once family-friendly studio Disney has been in America’s dog house lately. The Hollywood company sided with the radical left in recent years. And Americans did not like it. Its major streaming service is losing billions. And word is spreading that the company will have to lay off many workers.
They got rid of their CEO and brought back Bog Iger. It seems the returning boss is eager to fix many of the mistakes of the previous leadership. He hasn’t vowed to get rid of all the woke programming. But he just made a decision that will wrinkle more than a few of his leftist employees.
Walt Disney Co. is asking its workers to return to the company’s offices four days a week starting on March 1, according to an internal memo seen by Bloomberg.
“Employees currently working in a hybrid fashion will be asked to spend four days a week on-site, targeting Monday through Thursday as in-person workdays,” Bob Iger, who returned as chief executive officer of Disney in November, said in the memo.
This is pretty rich. Years after most companies returned to in-person work, woke Disney was still letting its employees work from home. Doesn’t this company make movies? How can most of its staff do that–from the comfort of their living rooms?
Iger is now requiring most staff to come to work at their Burbank offices, at least four days a week. Four days a week!? What poor victims. They have to put on clean pants, get into their cars, and drive to a fancy office. That’s a fate worse than death!
The returning CEO recommended staff come in Monday through Thursday, with Friday being a day at home. Hey, remember when people had to work actual work weeks? Crazy, right? They also had to, you know, do actual work!
I wonder how many Disney staffers were just phoning it in since 2020? Maybe that’s why they’ve been losing so much money?
Perhaps, if Iger really is determined to fix Disney’s problems, he’ll go a lot further than this. Cut the dead weight from the company. Go back to producing family-friendly content void of LGBT messaging. And stop with the politics.
Crazy, I know.
