Due to the recent installation of new sound systems in cinemas across the nation, the movie studios as a whole were in around $400 million of debt. Due to the Depression, theater attendance had dropped by 40%. Thus, the survival of the industry seemed a tentative thing at best (Price). However, the movies managed to draw people in even when they had almost nothing to spend. One way they did this was through the use of cut prices and other ploys to attract customers.
Holding the boats just days before the season starts, and the accumulating cost of sitting at the docks, has frustrated many boat owners. Keith Colburn, the owner of The Wizard, told fox reporters that the government shutdown really cut down on the profits of these fishers. He says that the main buyers of the crabs are the Japanese markets during the holiday seasons. And that they have to get the crabs to Japan by November, or they risk missing out on the main portion of their sales (Deadliest Catch's' Keith, 1). If the Japanese do not get their crabs by that time, then they will gladly go to the Russian market, which has been clouded by questionable practices.

College sports collect millions of dollars each year:Approximately around 40 million dollars a year, states and universities make. You would think that the amount of money that is made would get split between the franchises ,students and schools but unfortunately the students that play receive none of it.Theres many discussions on if college athletes should or should not get paid and because they already receive scholarships then they shouldn 't get paid. Scholarships in itself is “around 25,000-30,000 per year for example a student who 's division 1 thats over 100,000 for 4 years of college(Hartnett 1)”.So if college athletes would start getting paid then they shouldn 't get any scholarships and they would just have to pay for it with the money they are receiving. College Athletes contribute about “43 hours a week to the sport with practices and games, that doesn’t include the school work they have to do(Edleman 1)”.

Persuasive Essay I personally think it is unfair to the teachers, law enforcers, firefighter, etc… that professional athletes make way more money than they do. The average salary for a professional basketball player (NBA) is about 5.15 Million per year, MLB (baseball) 3.2 Million yearly, NHL (Hockey) 2.4 Million, NFL (Football) 1.9 Million yearly. That is a lot of money , especially compared to what teachers get paid. A teacher makes approximately $35,000-$55,000 yearly. So this means that an average player in the NBA is making up to 150 times more than a teacher.
In most professional sports, they play in games for only a few months and then have a few months off. They do practice every day, but is that worth millions of dollars? Most athletes are getting paid ridiculous amounts for short term contracts; for example Odell Beckham Jr is getting paid 25 million dollars a year for five years, and most people are not going to even get close to 2 million dollars in their lifetime. One of the main reasons that ticket prices are so high is that the fans have to pay for the “all star” salaries. I think that the pro leagues should just start to pay their players normal salaries or at least
On the other hand, in 2013, the industry suffered a huge blow as the company wrote the value of its brand to zero as there was a lot of debt, store closures and staff lay-offs. By the end of the financial year of 2012, it was estimated that Billabong lost $536M. 158 stores have vanished, 75% of its suppliers and 15% of its European staff have gone which forced the industry to sign a $386M deal with Oaktree Capital Management and Centerbridge Partners. Billabong's investment in their retail stores is the reason why they have managed to become a worldwide brand and generated a lot of profit. However, once their brand lost its footing, other competitors stepped into the Australian Market in an aim to overcome Billabong.
