This 50-cent increase will be effective starting July 1, 2016. SeaWorld also will be increasing wage rates for almost 100 job titles, both existing positions and new hires, as part of the company’s commitment to compensate employees with competitive pay. The increases will apply to roles in the three Orlando parks.
Mixed feelings on this. Great for SeaWorld to stay competitive, but bad that they leave their Tampa park out. Busch was already behind in pay (sometimes $5 or more/hr). The parks aren't -that- far apart, and the living situation for employees isn't that different. Share the love SeaWorld.
