The Harlem Globetrotters have figured out a way to fill their seats with government employees who can’t afford to purchase tickets without a paycheck, give them away for free!
The exhibition basketball team just announced they are giving away two free tickets to any furloughed government employee as the shutdown is well into its 25th day.
The tickets are good for any of the Globetrotter’s performances during their 2019 Fan Powered North American tour, which is scheduled to hit many stops in southern California.
California has more Federal employees than any other state, with more than 245,000 workers. Globetrotters president Howard Smith said, “As the Ambassadors of Goodwill, we want to show our support to all those government workers whose paychecks, and by extension their families, are directly impacted.”
The offer is only valid during the current government shutdown … but lets not make that an excuse to keep it going on any longer.
