Abigail Disney has always been outspoken about income inequality and has donated a majority of her inheritance. She recently expressed her disapproval of the $5.6 million paycheck Bob Iger received in 2018. According to ‘Fast Company’ Iger’s salary as CEO of Disney is 1,424 times the median employee pay at the company. Abigail concluded that Iger could have given a 10% raise to every Disneyland employee and still had $10 million left over.
Disney corp. responded to Abigail’s comments, citing their acquisition of Fox as a reason for Iger’s increased compensation. They also touted their recent raising of starting wages to $15, as well as their commitment of $150 million to education initiatives for employees.
