You people live in fantasy land if you think the resorts would simply eat the cost of substantially higher wages. They'd be passed on to the consumer via higher tickets and passes. And then you'll all bitch about that. And how many of your average snowsports consumers in the northeast would be willing to pay the difference? People keep saying we need to get more people into the sport and it is too cost-prohibitive as is, yet at the same time we're advocating for higher wages for ski area employees? Sorry, you can't have your cake and eat it too.
This is true. I actually didn't bring this up on purpose because it skews political, but it is essentially a regressive tax whereby we get better vacation options and locals take a bath on their lowish skill seasonal wage rates. I left it as 'prob industry and anti labor' or something to that effect.
