And just as we begin searching for the Chiefs’ worst moments since 1987, a new candidate emerges.
According to FOX 4 in Kansas City, the folks who work in the parking lots and turnstiles are losing one of the main reasons they seek such jobs: The ability to watch the games at no charge.
In the past, the workers have been permitted to stay and watch the games. “We were told that when we work and we are done, we are to clock out and leave the premises,” said Steve Warner, who has worked for 13 years (and we doubt there will be a 14th year) as a ticket taker. “That’s when everybody was very, very, very upset. . . . When we go and work hard at the gates and knowing that it’s hot outside or freezing in January, even during the season, you get your benefit of going and watching the game.”
Said the Chiefs, in a statement released to FOX 4L “We’re working to develop policies and practices that provide the best possible experience for our fans; and fair and appropriate compensation and benefits for our employees.”
So the good news, Arrowhead employees? The lockout could be ending soon.
The bad news? You may miss the first quarter or so of the game while you’re driving home to watch it on TV.
