David Beckham's MLS dreams in Miami is facing huge backlash

David Beckham is facing a huge backlash against his plans for a 25,000-seater soccer stadium in Miami.

An alliance of shipping interests and a billionaire car dealer have launched a newspaper ad protesting against David Beckham's plans for a soccer stadium in Miami, saying it threatens the city's plans to capitalize on the expansion of the Panama Canal.

"We cannot jeopardize well-paying jobs, like crane operators, longshore workers, and mechanics, for low-paying stadium jobs, such as concession sales," the Miami Seaport Alliance said in a full-page ad that ran in the Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald.
