Walt Disney chief executive Bob Iger has shot back at Bernie Sanders after the presidential candidate attacked the theme park and movie company on Tuesday over worker pay and conditions, The Wrap reports.
In a private Facebook post seen by The Wrap, Iger defended his company and slammed the Vermont senator for not contributing to the U.S. economy.
"To Bernie Sanders," the post said. "We created 11,000 new jobs at Disneyland in the past decade, and our company has created 18,000 in the U.S. in the last five years. How many jobs have you created? What have you contributed to the US economy?"
CNBC contacted Disney for comment and to verify that Iger had posted the comment. Senator Sanders' campaign team has also been contacted. Neither had replied by the time this article was published.
Speaking in Anaheim, California, on Tuesday, Sanders rounded on Disney over how it treated its workers, accusing the company of underpaying staff, outsourcing jobs overseas and using "sweatshops" to make toys.
"I say to Walt Disney: It is time to pay your workers a living wage. It is time to provide affordable housing to your employees. It is time to start manufacturing your products in the United States of America," Sanders said, according to the senator's website.
A Disney spokesperson told Variety that Sanders "clearly doesn't have his facts right."
