those prices are going up whether they pay their employees more or not. they'll just blame the correlating price increases on the employees this time around ;)
Yes and no

They will raise prices but this could push them to increase more to keep the profit margins higher

Also I’m not on the company side with this but right now it’s the what the current system in the US allows.

Also I live near USH even at full time you could barely afford an apartment with 25 and hour. So it’s a step but it’s late and needs to be over 35 and even that would barley be a livable wage

without getting into a whole thing about economics, universal raised its ticket prices 88 percent between 2007 and 2017 while minimum wage increased 40 percent.

Since 2007, the average price of an adult ticket for Disneyland has jumped 67% to $110, while the price of a ticket at the front gate at Universal Studios Hollywood has climbed 88% to $120. At Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, the front gate ticket price has jumped 50% to $75.

theme parks, like most businesses, are raising prices to the threshold the market allows. in slightly related reading, this piece argues against the coupling of wage increases and inflation.

I'm 100% with workers they deserve more for making these parks run and dealing with Guests. I'm also pointing out that I doubt USH doesn't try to increase prices at the same time
 
Add to that the additional 20-30 dollars extra they are making per head for the SNW early access. They are raking it in at the moment.

I'd be in favor of this if it drives up service levels and lets them keep better people, it would probably bankrupt SF Magic Mountain though.

I always like these posts. What is a liveable wage? You do realize when you raise the minimum to $25 then $35 as you suggest, everything else goes up with it. Have you seen the price for fast food lately? Yes, those employees got their mihimum wage increase per the state, and look at prices now. But to my main point, what is a liveable wage?
 
Gonna nip it in the bud. This isn’t the thread for this.
Should we start a separate thread? Because this is an issue that will affect USH and the businesses around it. Already the hotels are getting forced to pay $25 an hour and that will raise room prices and the possibllity of the occupancy rate going down. Thank you.

We're gonna stick to Brian's original post and end the conversation here. All good.
 
Think this is the right thread for this post (feel free to move MODS if it's not)

Is there any screen attraction at USH that doesn't need new projectors?
  • Simpsons - blurry.
  • Transformers - blurry.
  • Potter - blurry.
  • Kong 3D / Supercharged - blurry
  • and I'm guessing Minion Mayhem is also blurry.
Maybe it's that the better resolution TV's we get used to the worse these attractions look?

Jurassic, slop, panda and Mario kart screens are clean and bright

Might they use different tech but must be the something with the tech because there are online videos of the Simpsons ride video and it’s also clean and clear
