Used to be my posts led to discussions of WWII (specifically the eastern front). Now tipping. Guess I've come down in the world.
The thread starter didn't entitle this Calcaterra: The Class System and the Ballpark.
I deal with the same union that works in Verizon and Nats Park. So I'm pretty sure. I also know that even if I'm wrong about them being classified as non-tipped employees the tipped employee classification gets paid over $10 an hour. A very specific set of job classifications get classified as tipped. If anything they probably fall into the busboy type classifcation and get paid somewhere between 12 to 15 dollars an hour...
In this day and age almost nobody should be complaining about ticket prices and almost nobody should be buying tickets from the team.
How much do you think somebody who simply drops a bag off at your seat should make?
It is an absolute no-skill job that requires no intelligence, no education, no social skills, virtually nothing is needed out of the human being besides being able to walk with a bag. And for that they get paid a wage above minimum wage and get benefits. I'd classify anything above lick spittle as a very good salary for jobs like these.
