Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland, coach Tony Sparano and his assistant coaches received a pay cut on June 1. In May, the Dolphins cut salaries of support staff 10 to 20 percent. The percentage was larger for higher-paid employees, and all employees were told they'll return to full pay when the lockout ends. CEO Mike Dee blamed lagging ticket sales resulting from the lockout.
Owner Stephen Ross said employees will either receive back pay when the lockout ends or get time off to compensate for the reduced pay.
Wow, blame lagging ticket sales. Nice.
I would feel a might insulted at a comment like that since the labor dispute is the much more likely cause.
Anyway nice to hear that the staff will get money back or days off to compensate. But I have to wonder when they'd take those days off, since they'd be in football mode when the labor deal finally comes together.
