Opponents of a ballot measure to require the Disneyland Resort and some hotels in Anaheim to pay a living wage say it will have severe consequences for businesses and neighborhoods.

Opponents, including the popular resort and the city’s Chamber of Commerce, on Friday night submitted their position against the measure to appear alongside the ballot initiative at the Nov. 6 elections.

“It helps very few workers while creating severe consequences that harm EVERY Anaheim neighborhood and resident,” according to the anti-living wage argument.
