A union official who represents some Disney World employees was quick to charge Thursday that the Animal Kingdom incident could be an example of why the unions are challenging Disney World's recent efforts to turn over cleaning jobs, and other jobs, to outside contractors.

"This is an example of the kind of problem that Walt Disney World opens itself up to when it doesn't hire and train and supervise its own employees, but rather outsources work to outside vendors who may not have the same kind of commitment," said council president Morty Miller.
Wow! Talk about spin!

It is?

Unfortunately, these contractors seem to have provided the union with a fairly heinous example of something they've been warning about for some time. It's an unfortunate sort of thing to be getting political mileage out of, but I can't figure out how that's supposed to be 'spin.'

Can you elaborate, please?

Because a single isolated incident does not provide enough data to make such a claim. Something like this could just have easilly happened with a Disney employee. Now if a trend starts to happen, that's a different story.

That's why it's spin...
