The Cowboys won’t join the number of teams that have cut employee pay during the lockout. There won’t be any layoffs either.
“Each team has its own approach,” Jerry Jones said Wednesday via the Dallas Morning News. “Each team has its own need for its off-the-field employees that includes their coaching staff. We, for all practical purposes, are year-round for 99 percent of the employees that we have.”
Coaches are year round on every team, but that hasn’t stopped some owners from using the lockout as an excuse to punish people that have nothing to do with the labor dispute.
Jones noted that it’s been a “normal” year with hirings and firings as you’d expect. He also expressed optimism that the labor mess will end, although he had no idea on a timeline. Like the rest of us.
“This train is going to get there; I just want to be on it,” Jones said.
