Sen. Bernie Sanders attended a rally Saturday in Anaheim, California with Disneyland workers who are fighting for higher wages.

Speakers at the event included union leaders pushing a ballot measure that would require businesses receiving subsidies from the city to pay workers at least $15 per hour.

Disney is receiving a tax break of about $267 million over 20 years to build a luxury hotel at Disneyland, where 85 percent of employees currently receive an hourly wage of less than $15.
