"Disney/ABC = Sweatshops in Haiti, Union Busting in the U.S." New York City, circa 1997.

Unionized news writers, technicians and other workers at ABC protest the corporate greed of the Disney/ABC corporation, linking ABC's threat to use part time workers to avoid paying benefits with Disney's use of sweatshop labor in the production of children's toys. Corporate greed was symbolized by company president Michael Eisner's own newly signed employment contract estimated to give him $102,000 per hour, at a time when subcontracted textile and toy makers in Haiti and Burma and elsewhere made less than 50 cents per hour.
