The mainstream perspective that the Walt Disney Company is magical and delightful is hard for me to appreciate and from a social-conflict analysis Macionis Gerber point of view I would label the organization as a deviant capitalist corporation Not only have they broken numerous contracts with actors musicians and families of artists and writers who created cartoons and feature movies they have caused severe environmental damage to bodies of water and wildlife in and around the amusement parks Employees are constantly mistreated and cheap sweatshop labourers are used to produce many garments souvenirs gifts and toys which Disney marks up and sells for a massive profit If an individual or small business were caught doing any of these acts they would be condemned by society and potentially lose their company through bankruptcy and loss of customers unlike the legacy of Disney which continues to thrive financially and publicly even through their most atrocious actions The violation of a contract is a serious issue in our society that filters down through all types of careers and lifestyles and in turn is looked upon by the public as dishonest and labels those involved as deviant and untrustworthy This view applies to most but in the case of the Walt Disney Company it is just another aspect to which a blind eye is turned and no serious or detrimental repercussions are issued Jazz Singer Peggy Lee provided the voices for four of the characters in the 1955 Disney cartoon feature Lady and the Tramp for which she received 3 500 She also co wrote six songs for the movie with Sonny Burke each receiving 1 000 Crossan When the film was released on videotape in 1987 it became the biggest selling video of the year and Lee sued Disney for violating her contract in which she retained rights to the transcriptions Disney fought the seventy-year-old wheelchair-ridden singer tooth and nail but in 1991 a Los Angeles judge
