Camden Yards retail, food workers rally for $15 minimum wage

May 25, 2022

Food and retail workers at Camden Yards are demanding a $15 an hour wage as they bargain for a new union contract, saying their current agreement doesn’t do enough to meet the increased cost of living. Workers with Unite Here Local 7 rallied outside of Camden Yards Monday afternoon, arguing that low wages are impacting concession workers, who are paid $12.50 an hour, said Tracy Lingo, Unite Here Local 7 staff director. The workers are currently operating under a 2017 contract that was extended into 2021, but negotiations for a new agreement are ongoing.
