NBA Finals mean more money for concession workers

The Miami Heat are competing against the Indiana Pacers for a berth in the NBA finals. And while the players will earn a lot of money from these games, so do concession workers at the American Airlines Arena and people who work in sports bars near the arena.

"I love the fact that the Heat are in the playoffs because I get more work," said Alexis Gonzales, a concession worker.

"I am a big Heat fan but an even bigger fan when I get more work at the arena," said Ben Ponce.

"It is always good for us when the Heat play a big game. We get more customers who are willing to spend more money at my bar," said Joseph Suggs.
