Re: “Who was lobbying Nova Scotia to eliminate our athletes' minimum wage protection?

I think there is a reason professional athletes are paid a salary. It's almost impossible to quantify how many hours an athlete "works". Long training days and travel are requirements of the "job" outside of playing the actual games. Media availability and appearances at events are other unconsidered factors of their job. Yes, it is a job. That's probably why the cutoff for play in the league is 16, though a handful of players are 15 in their rookie years. They presently get like $50-$60 a week, which was also the stipend in the early 80's for what I've heard. They're certainly due for a raise, if nothing else. I just don't like it being framed on a per hour basis, because that could have a trickle-up effect to the pros. They also receive substantial tuition assistance, usually paid out as they attend their chosen institution.
