Local Kool-Aid Stand to Move Operations to Fort Worth

Citing rising labor costs, ten-year old Kool-Aid stand owner Katie Nelson has decided to move her entire operation to Fort Worth Texas.

“A glass of Kool-Aid costs 50 cents, said Katie. “I’m paying my little brother Mikey five cents per glass he pours, and it’s killing me. The labor market in Fort Worth is different; I can pay someone four cents per glass. At the end of the year, that will add up to a bigger bonus for me.”

This move is despite record profits for the Kool-Aid stand located at the corner of 33rd and Liberty.  “I know that we’ve had record profits this year,” said Katie “but that only means the profits are higher this year than any other year.”

Mikey Nelson says his sister has offered him a position at the newly constructed stand in Fort Worth, but has decided against it because he would be taking a pay cut and losing his accrued sick and vacation time. “I’m expecting to be laid off any day now,” he said.
