The MLB lockout coverage understandably focuses on the situation’s impact on the players, owners, and fans, but stadium workers are deeply affected by the labor dispute.
On Friday, Jeff Passan reported that in addition to the MLBPA setting aside $1M in aide for those workers, MLB will also be setting up a fund.

Between this and the MLBPA's commitment of $1 million to the workers whose jobs are on hold, it's nice to see everyone in the game can come together and look out for those inadvertently affected by the lockout. https://t.co/nOMWpS7cPz

Fans are obviously frustrated with the league’s decision earlier this week to cancel regular season games, but it doesn’t have the same financial impact that it does for stadium employees.
At least MLB and the MLBPA can agree on the fact that they should both provide financial assistance to the employees who now don’t have any work the first week of April.
