  A doc from the Disney family takes aim at the Mouse House NEW YORK (AP) — Abigail E. Disney has been critical of the company that bears her name before. But for the first time, Disney, the granddaughter of co-founder Roy O. Disney, has put her views into the medium the Mouse House was built on: a movie. In the new documentary “The American Dream and Other Fairy Tales,” Disney argues that the Walt Disney Co. has lost its moral compass. As one of the company's most prominent and outspoken critics — one who happens to be from within the Disney family — Disney lays out an unflattering portrait of the company, particularly in regard to pay inequity and the struggles of some theme park employees to sustain their families on minimum-wage salarie

on the occasion of the minimum lighter increase and with a view to the energy price crisis, the SPD party chairman Saskia Esken advocates significant increases in the wages. "The minimum wage is always an impulse for higher wages - that is currently particularly important," said Esken of the "Stuttgarter Zeitung" and the "Stuttgarter Nachrichten" (Saturday). "The unions that are now going into collective bargaining should make it clear that degrees have to map the inflation rate."

million employees in Germany have had more money for their work since Saturday. The minimum wage rose from October 1 from 10.45 euros to 12 euros per hour. Another significant increase "also awaits you at the minimum wage if the competent commission sets it up for next year," said ESKE.

Faced with rampant inflation, they demonstrate to claim wage increases.

criticism came from the employers' association BDA. "The statement by the SPD boss exposes the talk of a one-off interference with the work of the minimum wage commission," said general manager Steffen Kampeter on Saturday. Anyone who sets another political requirement for commission work after the minimum increase in langers show "not only economic ignorance, but also lack of respect" in front of the work of unions and employers. «The SPD leader wants to make collective bargaining politics directly in the German Bundestag. One should go to stop. "

Further interventions by the government should not exist

Federal Minister of Labor Hubertus Heil (SPD) had previously assured that there was no further political interference with the minimum wage development. "For further increase steps, the minimum wage commission will again take on its important task," said the SPD politician of the Funke Mediengruppe (Saturday). Usually the minimum wage commission consisting of representatives of the social partners determines the height. However, the increase to 12 euros is based on a previously unique intervention by the government.

But, to be inspired by what works elsewhere in order to boost the attractiveness of the profession, to revalue wages is not the only measure on which to take example.

The minimum wage always remains an absolute border of wages, said Heil. «In order to get better wages and working conditions, we have to advance the collective bargaining in Germany. 52 percent are not enough. »

IFO boss Clemens Fuest warned of a further increase in inflation in view of the minimum increase. "As far as the minimum wage increases the income of vulnerable groups in the lowest income area, it is helpful," said the economic researcher of the Düsseldorf "Rheinische Post" (Saturday). “However, he mainly burdens small companies that suffer from increasing energy prices anyway. If possible, they will overlap the higher wages as far as possible, this increases inflation. »

The minimum wage rises nominal - i.e. without considering price development - by around 15 percent, said Fuest. Against the background of current inflation development, the real wage increase is reduced to 5 percent.
