Well if you think stealing money from the young kids is fair, I will have nothing to say. Everyone wants to do it doesn't mean the owner's has the right to rip people off. I am surprised everyone here seems on the owner's side. Are you a Minor league GM? If somehow I work for the player's union, I will call for a nationwide strike against Minor league Baseball. This depressingly low salary is a unfair practice, we should fight for the players right.
Minor league salaries are 100% expense with no return on investment to the MLB club until players make the majors and draw fans. Minor league teams are not owned by MLB franchises. MLB teams do not get a return on the gate.
