Florida Disney employee and Congressional Candidate Jose Castillo ripped into Disney over their decision to cover the cost of travel for their employees to go get abortions.
He said that they knew the memo would be leaked out saying they wanted to make a “political statement.”
A Florida Disney employee ripped the company’s campaign to cover abortion travel costs for workers, telling The Post on Saturday it’ll be bad for business and would “alienate” customers.
Jose Castillo, who works in resort management in Orlando, accused the Walt Disney Co. of trying to influence politics after wading into the fraught abortion issue in the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.
Disney was among the big American names to speak out after the landmark abortion case was struck down Friday, vowing in an internal memo that they would reimburse employees who have to travel out-of-state to have the procedure carried out.
Here is what he had to say.
”Disney knew full well that this memo would be leaked and make national news,” Castillo told the Post.
”They sent it anyway because Disney wants to make a political statement and attempt, once more, to influence our country’s political process,” he said. ”This is yet another attempt by Disney to take a political stance that will inevitably alienate potential customers.”
”As we have seen in recent months, Disney’s political activism has hurt the company financially and it is my belief that the Board of Directors is violating its fiduciary duty to shareholders by continuing to comment on divisive political matters,” Castillo said.
