STADIUM WORKERS FIND SILVER LINING TO CLOUD OF BROWNS MOVE
Published December 13, 1995
Ushers, ticket takers, guards and police for games at Cleveland Stadium have received 50% pay hikes since the Browns move was announced, according to the Akron BEACON JOURNAL. Browns spokesperson Kevin Byrne: "We want to ensure that they show up, frankly. We want to be able to give the fans a comfort level that this is a good, safe environment." According to Glenn Preibis, VP of Cleveland operations for Andy Frain Services, which provides crowd management services for the Browns, they are usually 40-50 employee no-shows for a home game. But for the November 19 Packers game, right after the move announcement, about 100 workers didn't show up (Akron BEACON JOURNAL, 12/13).
