The increasing prices of pinball machines comes from wages and taxes. So why are they made in the city with the highest rates? I recently had a neighbor move from Chicago because they were taxing 65% of his paycheck! Not saying Northern Kentucky has the entertainment of a big city but Amazon has made us the hub of america because of cheap wages, railroad, and an international airport. So how much cheaper would it be to manufacture pinball outside of Chicago? I am surrounded by car part factories for this reason. Square foot building in Chicago versus somewhere else is 8x as much? Pointless, I say move.
