This G20 Event was not well thought out by our "best and brightest" over on Grant St... I have to spend 4 days at my friend's house in the East End just so that I can get to work. I count myself as one of the lucky ones, however, seeing as I can work on those days. Friends I have talked to who work downtown have to use vacation days in order to take off and will have to work overtime on weekends to earn those days back. My mother who lives downtown will not be able to see her visiting nurse those days, and I pray to God that she remains healthy on those days.

News Flash Luke: Pittsburghers are losing money, losing valuable vacation days, and being inconvenienced in general, and I know your base is dwindling fast.

What is the Real cost of the G20?

What is the real cost of the G20??

The Mayor says the G20 will cost the city of Pittsburgh $18 million dollars. But "the City" is more than the Mayor and his budget. "The City" includes hundreds of thousands of residents in 90 neighborhoods along with students from around the world living in dorms at seven colleges in Oakland and downtown. From child care cost to lost wages to temporary relocation, we have been hearing about the REAL costs borne by the REAL City of Pittsburgh We have started this blog to hear from you about your cost.
