@Josh Michtom@facebook Hey, some concrete advice! Much appreciated. Is there a list somewhere of which hotels are unionized?
Okay, but that is a valid point re: the hotels not doing their part by paying better wages...what to do about that?
@Allison Well, some people treat it (properly) like entertainment, and some treat it more like a doctor/lawyer/accountant thing where you are presumably getting some kind of specialized service. Therein lies some of the problem. As far as your other question, I'd say that yes, I do have a problem with priests,ministers,etc. getting sometimes large salaries when the actual 'work' they do seems minimal.
There's about a billion kinds of beer; I'm sure you can find one or two that are appealing to you. There's even beer-wine hybrids!
