The walkouts at Disneyland began May 10 with 200 workers participating. This rose to 500 during a second walkout May 23. On Tuesday, May 30 the participation of workers rose to 1,000.
The strikers are seeking a monthly wage increase of 200 Euros. According to Forbes magazine "Disneyland Paris posted a strong 2022 with a $51 million operating profit and record revenue of $2.6 billion."
The workers and the CGT have promised future job actions will be coming.
