The NBA remains stuck in a lockout this morning as negotiations between players and owners have failed to produce a new collective bargaining agreement. Tomorrow is scheduled be the first day of the 66th season, but instead the stadiums will remain closed and fans will stay at home. It’s a big disappointment for fans, but for many people, their livelihoods are on the line too.

Many workers were laid off from their jobs in the restaurants surrounding Magic Stadium in Orlando, Florida. Some ended up looking for advice and help at the Community Food and Outreach Center based just a few miles away, run by Scott George.
