Lady Kingman and I were in a bar last night and saw this report on NBC-TV,
with the sound off. Definitely click through and watch the video.
Aramark had a big job fair out at Citi Field Saturday to fill 600 positions, everything from ticket takers to bartenders. With the economy being so bad, the turnout of applicants was enormous.
But what about the folks who used to work at Shea Stadium? This was a concern at the end of last season. Loge13 residents did have a few favorite beer vendors and bartenders (veterans of Casey's Pub). We don't know the fates of our loved ones. If anyone has updates on Shea employees, please let me know.
Alot of the long-time ushers (who are not employed by Aramark) told us in September they had to reapply for their jobs this year and there is no guarantee they'd be back. It would be very sad of those old familiar faces of Shea were cut loose simply because the Mets baseball diamond moved a few hundred feet over.
