....I wonder what the letter to the employees said?

"Dear valued employees: profits are down, look forward to negative wage 'adjustments' and furloughs.

Work harder.

A letter to Disney employees? Perhaps the one at the end of 2013 would note the losses from their channels being off of DISH Network for a month or two and a promise that 2014 would be better.

I wonder what the letter to the employees said?

Now we know what the letter to Disney employees said: "You're downsized!" From Variety Layoffs Underway at Disney:

Individuals working in home entertainment, production, distribution and marketing, as well as the company’s music and theater business in New York City are feeling the brunt of the impact, with only a small number of employees leaving the animation division.

And according to The Hollywood Reporter:

As Disney's stock was touching another all-time high on Wednesday, about 150 employees at the conglomerate's filmed entertainment segment were getting the word that their services were no longer needed.

The pink slips, insiders say, weren't unexpected, as published reports began to surface last week indicated that they were coming, and because word was out that CEO Robert Iger was looking for efficiencies and cost-cutting measures in areas where digital technologies were reshaping businesses, such as in home entertainment.

Yes, Disney stock hits high, Disney's CEO Bob Iger lays off employees, and according to this thread Charlie Ergin is the most hated man in Hollywood
