The issue with them seems to be finding help willing to do it for minimum wage on the limited hours a sports team can offer, not saving money on the $5 hot dogs, $5 half litre cokes and $8 beer.

They obviously don't limit it to church groups, but to school teams, Boy Scout troops and such, and they have no trouble finding groups to do it, they apparently rotate the slots, one group will run one stand, and the beer and booze are more like Loveland Business Councils and not Church youth groups, its very popular. I have never even heard anyone making a fuss over church groups in publicly funded stadiums, which when you think about it is surprising,

The Indians do that, as well. When my son was in Boy Scouts, our troop looked into it. The troop could have made several thousand dollars for two or three nights work. We decided not to pursue it, because we didn't need the money that badly, and we weren't sure we could get enough moms and dads to do the work. We couldn't have the boys work. I think you had to be 18.

That's a little different that having volunteers simply work for nothing. The church group or, in our case a scout troop, would be paid handsomely. The volunteers only worked a couple of games.

One time I was at a game, and I went to the booth and ordered a beer. At the time, I was about fifty, but the lady working there asked to see my driver's license. She wasn't kidding. She had been told to "card everybody", so she did. Sadly, the professional vendors, lugging beer down into the seating areas, were not as scrupulous. There were two fifteen year old boys behind us who were bragging that the vendor sold them beer.

Department of Labor, actually.

Here's the decision:

Basically it follows along in the footsteps of Tony & Susan Alamo Fdn. v. Sec'y of Labor (SCt 1985) which said the foundation's workers were actually employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

I used to work as a volunteer manager, and there are pretty tough laws (in Australia at least) governing what you can ask volunteers to do. One of the biggies is that you can't fire paid staff and replace them with volunteers. And obviously that would be bad for your bottom line, too, because one of the benefits to volunteering is that you can quit at any time for any reason. So, you put a volunteer in charge of the concession stand, she gets fed up and walks off the job, you have no recourse. Volunteers don't like bring taken advantage of, and customers like at least some consistency of customer service. I can't see his little plan working too well.

Ken Ham is from Australia but I don't think he'll be accepting Australian jurisdiction for his Ark Scam Park, even if all his amusement park's "science" is upside down! The unique fauna of Australia has always been one embarrassing conundrum among many for that idiotic brand of young earth creationism as its proponents try to explain away the persistent refusal of reality to accord with their mythic nonsense. Perhaps that's one reason why Ken Ham prefers the States over Oz? (Actually, I guess the real reason must be the larger pool of gullible, scammable victims.)

Ken Ham can't see a fact without trying to lie about it, he can't see a mark without trying to fleece it. He is almost Trumpian in his preference for dishonesty over righteousness.

I don't know about the local law for the Ark Krap but I expect you're right about it.

After devoting years of her life to Answers in Genesis, a young woman leaves, physically and mentally broken. Almost all of her post involves how she tried through proper christian female ways to explain that there was a problem. Hard read as she still seems to brainwashed. She seems to hope that someone will fix the problem and all will be fine.

An open letter on the harm that I received since 2015 from Answers in Genesis and other entities, having biblically attempted to resolve what happened to me by following both Matthew 18 and any protocols necessary for proper reconciliation.

My purpose in writing this is that SILENCE PROLONGS ABUSE, and I can no longer be silent. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” - Edmund Burke

Before I continue to say what happened, I will emphasize how I’ve attempted to biblically address Answers in Genesis:

During my time at AiG, I worked as hard as possible so that when the time came for me to speak, I would have proven my diligence and willingness to work in whatever way was needed. I originally believed that Ken Ham DID NOT know the toxic nature of AiG, but during my employment I discovered that the toxic culture of AiG goes all the way to Ken, and there is no intention of changing the burnout and bullying culture that is AiG - Ken is in fact an active part of it. After leaving AiG, I had the opportunity to speak to some board members about the state of AiG, and I did so in an objective manner that identified the necessary changes from a business standpoint, without bringing my individual pain into it. Greater and more knowledgeable people than myself have also made attempts to voice the same concerns at AiG, and suddenly left under mysterious circumstances. Quite some time has passed, and I know for a fact that nothing has changed. Google “answers in genesis workplace reviews” or talk to people still employed there, asking for an honest answer and not just “it’s great”.

Herein begins a summary of my life since 2015.
