Ticketmaster sets prices in accordance with supply and demand. How is this a monopoly?

Don't they own the venues via Live Nation, have exclusive contracts for the primary sale of tickets with the labels and acts, add badly disclosed fees to every transaction, routinely screw up the sale of tickets to the public, and don't adequately prevent scalpers and bots from buying tickets?

They also hold tickets back to sell as resale at highly inflated prices when supply starts to dwindle.

Isn't the issue that love nation is the venue and they require you to sell tickets through ticketmaster (i.e., if you want to use their venue you can't use StubHub)?

Because there is no other business who can challenge Ticketmaster's supply-demand based pricing outputs. They set the price and you are expected to pay or not watch the show.
Lack of options is what creates the monopoly.

I am a registered sales assistant which means I have my series 7. I also have the 63 and my Life & Health license. I was a financial advisor but the role is commission only so I decided to take a role as an assistant for some time to learn etc. I really like my role, but I only make 32k a year and after taxes I only take home about 25k. I have a gut feeling that I’m not being paid market value but it’s tough to find comparable salaries. Do you think $15.38/hr is a fair wage in this case?

25M, unmotivated to work out because I’m so weak and scrawny. I can’t really develop a habit because I just get discouraged being the weakest person in the entire gym. I don’t really feel comfortable around free weights and I don’t want to waste a personal trainers time either.

Any advice to break this vicious cycle?

I genuinely enjoy my "job" as I find the work--when I can do it--interesting and sort of fun but work has been increasingly unbearable. While my own manager and their manager are quite supportive, nothing goes anywhere due to leadership allowing an extremely abusive workplace to persist. I'm stuck dealing with complete disrespect from some individuals, gaslighting, and outright lies being spread by certain leaders.

I'm not even sure if I can hold out another year until certain benefits vest.
