Angels minor leaguers blast Arte Moreno for terrible living conditions

We hire part time kids. We pay them more per hour than these minor leaguers. So none.

And some minor leaguers are given $400k bonuses. That's not the issue here. 

So none of your employees have ever struggled to pay their rent and grocery bills?

Lou I’m not going to do this with you.  You are on the side of Arte shouldn’t do more because it isn’t good business. I’m on the side of taking care of your associates/employees/players is always good business.

I’ve never once told an associate, tomorrow you are moving to Mobile Alabama. 

These players know from day dot (hi @WicketMaiden) that this is what they signed up for. Don't make it seem as they're surprising them out of nowhere.

I never said he shouldn't do more. Don't misrepresent my comments.

MLB cut 42 minor league teams this year.

I haven't heard anyone here crying about those players being out of jobs. 

There were threads at the time about how shitty it was.

But where's the concern now. What if they are struggling? What if they're eating Taco Bell and have roommates? 

I weep for them.

Maybe some of these millionaire high draft picks should pitch in somehow like MIchael Jordan did when he made a go of it to play minor league baseball and bought a team bus. Spend some of that money to make life easier.

But they buy dinner when they go on rehab assignments!  What else do you want from them?

So, you want the millionaires to pay extra to the junior employees of the billionaire, because the billionaire won't? Got it.

I think this is the question that is analogous to the core of this thread:

How does your pay, your benefits and your working conditions compare to your competition - McDonalds, Carl's Jr., Burger King?

You're doing yeoman's work here, @Stradling.

It'll fall on mostly deaf ears here, because, well, fuck 'em. They knew what they were getting into. 

If you can legally get away with not doing well for their employees, then by-god, why not?

Sounds like the players aren't doing well for themselves. 

Go shopping, idiots.

That is what the billionaire is doing, so why shouldn't the millionaires do the same.
