It's definitely a classy move to help out the concession workers.

"Occasionally you see people expressing their frustration. Most times peacefully. Sometimes not. ... I've been very careful to not speak on politics. It is difficult for people to pull themselves up if the jobs that were here for the prior generations are no longer available."

All employees too.

Hopefully the Orioles have changed the practices towards their workers. CVS and other companies also paid employees during the unrest. I hope John Angelos means what he said and not just earning points like many others.

Cherkis said, however, that the new law applies only to full-time employees, not the temporary and part-time workers UWA is organizing, including the 150 temp workers employed at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. That sports stadium, owned by the state of Maryland, is leased to Orioles baseball team owner Peter Angelos. He subcontracts with Michigan-based Knight Facilities Management (KFM) to clean the stadium both during and after Orioles games. KFM charges each of the temp workers $6 fare for the van that carries them to and from the stadium. When that is subtracted, the workers earn less than Maryland’s $6.15 an hour minimum wage.

Actually the minimum wage in Maryland is $8.00. Except for certain occupations:

Maryland's minimum wage is $8.00 per hour. This is greater than the Federal Minimum Wage. You are entitled to be paid the higher wage.

The minimum wage is $8.00 per hour for most employees in Maryland, with exceptions for tipped employees, some student workers, and other exempt occupations.[1]

Maryland raised their minimum wage to $8.00 per hour in January 2015, the first time it was raised above the Federal Minimum Wage. Future minimum wage raises are scheduled to $8.25 per hour on July 1, 2015, $8.75 per hour on July 1, 2016, $9.25 on July 1, 2017, and $10.10 on July 1, 2018.Before these raises were enacted, Maryland adopted the current Federal Minimum Wage rate by reference. One notable exception to the Maryland minimum wage any small food service business (such as restaurants, taverns, and drug stores) grossing under $250,000 a year.

The articles are from years back.I was just showing how the employees were treated Also when Delaware North took over the concessions ,many employees had to reapply for the same job at lower wages and loss of seniority. Hope John Angelos is really for these workers.

    • Everyone excited about hot starts this spring.  Meanwhile, not a peep about Jorge who’s crushing the ball right now.   Looks like he’s in mid April form.   Jorge, if only this could last longer than a few weeks or a month or two.   When Jorge doesn’t commit too early he’s a dangerous (I didn’t say good) hitter.   He must drive the hitting coaches crazy.
    • Basallo stands a good chance to get some at bats too.
    • Roch: Kyle Stowers broke camp with the Orioles last spring. He’s trying to bust up every mock Opening Day roster that doesn’t include him. Stowers hit his second left-on-left home run today, this time against Bailey Falter, and it was an absolute missile - launched to right-center field at a sound that hurt eardrums. In his next at-bat, Stowers singled into center field against left-hander Ryan Borucki. It’s becoming a trend going back to live batting practice. Stowers held at 2-for-2 after his free pass in the sixth. The media again wanted to grill him about his success versus southpaws. "I'm surprised you don't wanna talk about the walk against the righty," he quipped. "I honestly haven't been seeing as many righties so far for whatever reason. As you guys know, I've been having a little more success against the lefties thus far, and so I was really happy to have that at-bat against the righty. Like I said, I feel confident against both lefties and righties, but it was nice to have a successful, positive result against the righty." Stowers has done a nice job staying on the ball against left-handers and erasing the advantage. "Left-on-left, I think most guys would tell you you're kind of forced to stay on it a little bit longer and it kind of cleans up a lot of lefties mechanically because of what you have to do to have success. ... Just not giving up on that front side." The outfield competition got a whole lot more interesting with Stowers' return to it after going 2-for-30 with the Orioles last year and injuring his right shoulder and fracturing his nose on a hit-by-pitch at Triple-A. He said his spring so far is "OK, I think it could be better." "I love what I'm doing in my work, I love what I'm doing off the field," he said. "I feel like I'm working really hard. Obviously, we all want the results to be better, but I'm really happy with the process I've been putting in and just have to stick to it."
    • I wonder if Lorenzen has some sort of injury that’s preventing him to sign?  Snell and Montgomery both want $30 million a year. Clevinger and Bauer have DV/SA issues. After looking into it, it looks like the only reason Clevinger pitched last year was because he signed his FA deal before the allegations came out.
    • What team in the AL East has 6-8 top starters ready to go? 
    • https://www.masnsports.com/blog/kjerstad-on-cowser
    • I could see 1000+ happening between Cowser, Holliday, Mayo, and Kjerstad. Cowser can essentially give days off to Mullins, Hays, Santa, and O’Hearn. He’s essentially what Holliday will be in once he is called up. He’ll be in a rotation. Cowser could really help this team with just defense at 3 spots and a .725 OPS. Both of which should be achievable.
