Met Labor Dispute: Writers Weigh In

Posted at 11:18 AM on August 7, 2014 by Rex Levang (1 Comments)

The labor situation at the Metropolitan Opera continues to be tense and uncertain. Last week, it seemed as though a lock-out might be coming any day. That did not come to pass--so far at least--but the disputes between management and unions about budgets, salaries, and decision-making are anything but settled.

Here's one take on things, from Anthony Tommasini of the New York Times. (And among the reader comments, there's one from a Saint Paul writer, who identifies himself as Garrison Keillor.)

Given that Garrison is a union supporter, I find it hard to believe that this is his comment.
