U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) joined Disneyland workers in a roundtable discussion and rally in Anaheim Saturday.
The rally centered around some Disneyland Resort workers who are arguing for higher wages. A coalition of unions has collected about 21,000 signatures in an attempt to qualify a measure for the November Anaheim ballot. It would require employers within the Anaheim Resort who accept city subsidies to pay workers a minimum of $15 an hour. Disney and unions representing some of its workers currently are in pay discussions.
