If they can find a better paying gig elsewhere, let them go get it.  Otherwise they'll have to earn what the market dictates, and that appears to be whatever they're earning right now.

Did you read the article? They aren't complaining.

I never said that anyone was complaining.

My point was the article was less about the folks working at Nats Park than it was about the union organizers and the Nats FO response to them.

Have you read it yet?

Then they should have studied more and paid attention in school.
If you are standing over a grill in August, it represents the execution of a piss poor plan for the future.

Not everyone has the luck to have what it takes to graduate with a degree in engineering. Or even a degree at all.

I read it before I responded.  My comment was in response to what Halfsmokes wrote.

I wasn't aware DC had its own minimum wage. Thank you.

Not saying that the random grill tender could be a college graduate if he had tried harder. But getting a part time, seasonal job at Nats Park as the hot dog griller is just one step above not trying at all.

About to lose my job and my response is often, "It's easy to talk crap when you have a job."    Be thankful you have a job and quit freakin' with people who are over a grill in August.     You're right Gburg, sometimes crap happens.      Props my man.   You get it.

It's not that bad of a job though, free baseball!

Unionize?  How hard is it to find someone that takes 25 minutes to serve an effing sausage on a bun?  If they unionize, I demand that concessions refund me 100% of my money for every inning I stand in line waiting for a dog.  If it takes a full inning for me to purchase an over priced half-smoke, I should get it for free.  Service already sucks.

Maybe if management gave a crap about their workers instead of maintaining the attitude that ...we can walk down the street and replace you in 10 seconds with someone else we refuse to train for a job...service would get better.

Yep. What's wrong with the statement? I know that when dealing with urban schools, I am simplifying things.

But, Am I missing something? Is working over a hot grill a desirable job?

Not everyone has the resources to get a degree in business, engineering, or even a high school degree. By resources, I mean anything from the cognitive capabilities to the parents willing to refrain from taking drugs, to whatever.

Those folks sometimes man the grills. Treating them decently is not a ridiculous concept.

The guys working the grills work for Levy. The guys who are trying to unionize are team employees. The ushers, the ticket takers, the people who tell you not to stand on the landings of the stairways.

The doctor who performed elbow surgery on Stephen Strasburg said he did not tell the Washington Nationals to shut down their ace pitcher.

“I wasn’t asked,” Dr. Lewis Yocum told the Los Angeles Times.

Yocum said he had not talked with Nationals General Manager Mike Rizzo since last year and had not talked with Strasburg since spring training.

Yocum said that, had he been asked, he would not have been able to provide conclusive information about whether Strasburg’s long-term health would be best served by shutting him down.

“There’s no statistic as far as studies,” Yocum said.

All those holier than thou posts about medical science backing up Rizzo. Apologist sheep went along with it.
