Delaware County chipped in $34 million to build a soccer-only stadium in Chester for a privately owned team that couldn't even work in Chester or Delco into its name.
The Delco Union. Probably not appropriate especially for the point about to be made.
The Pennsylvania Convention Center in Center City is under fire by conventioneers for the union-inspired, loanshark price structure to set up exhibits, even for work that could reasonably be done by the exhibitor himself. To use a laptop for an audiovisual display requires the involvement of a stagehand at $37 per hour. To use it to register visitors to the booth requires an electrician at $46 per hour, To erect the booth requires a carpenter at $107 per hour.

Costs more in NYC .................. !!!
Personally experienced this twice in last three weeks. Internet on trade show floor for two days $850(DC) and $1200 (LV).
That’s one ugly website.
To turn the economy around a lot of Unions both public and private need to be constrained. It is them or the rest of us.
I really hated those lazy, corrupt union bastards.
The exhibitors need to raise holy hell with the exhibition companies about this.
There are plenty of convention palaces where the unions do not rule.
Once upon a time I worked at Ma Bell, here in the Midwest. On a trip to a NJ location, I was informed that in order to change out a PC card in a computer I was working on, would require the services of a IBEW or CWA member.
I was stunned. It would take me longer to request such service than to swap the card, and that doesn’t even include the wait times.
Thankfully, I didn’t have those issues at my little Midwest outpost.
Well, duh! Take the conventions elsewhere. Make it a priority to never set up in these union places.
I honestly don't know why anyone would have a convention in Philadelphia.
San Francisco was terrible a few years back and probably still is.
It is not much better on in the western part of PA either. They do the same crap at David L. Lawrence Conv. Ctr. here in Pittsburgh.
The scummiest parts of the Unions last the longest. What was good has largely died out replaced with grifters and radicals.
