In response to lostinbaltimore's comment:
Sorry San your wrong, we at Camden Yards are one of the highest paid unions in the north east. Nobody who works concession gets more than $10 an hour. Since it is seasonal work we don't get benefits. Furthermore, we use very few of our own employees at the concessions stands, we rent them out to non-for profits who get about 30% of the receipts at the stand. He's doing fine, by the way where did you get the 3 million a game figure?
"Unions are involved. Concession workers at most of the staduims make around $18 an hour and depending on the state."
No apologies neccasary. I mentioned depending on the state not "every state". At Petco Park the concession workers make $18Hr because of the unions, same one I had to be a member of to work at the Del Mar Race Track. I got partial health benefits during the season same as working at Qualcomm Stadium.
I got $3M in losses per game off the web, the same place I had to go to to apply to be union member in order to work at a concession making more than $8 or $10 an hour when I was at school.
San, as a shop stewart and one of the people in the room bargining with Delaware North on our first contract two years ago, NO BODY is getting 18.00 an hour to flip burgers at a DNC ball park(WE saw their pay scale). They are paying me 18.25% a beer and their opening bid to us was 9%(That's what they pay there Midwest shops). It wasn't till we proved that our sitting contract ARMARK paid us 18% and Federal law demanded that they honor it or rewrite it and we said sure but at the end of the 5 year deal we wanted 20%. We got a 3 year deal for 18.25% for all 3 years. Trust me DNC pays crap for working there.
I'd look a little harder into that 3 million a game, because I can tell you DNC cash reciepts after the two playoff game with the Yankees in October was roughly 500,000 and the card card reciepts were slightly better. I know this because when our contract runs out after this year this topic will be brought up front and center.
