We can add employees of the Atlanta Falcons to the list of people whose pay has been cut because of the NFL lockout.
Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that the Falcons are implementing minor payroll reductions to members of the office staff. (I’m guessing those members of the office staff don’t consider their payroll reductions to be “minor.”)
The Falcons haven’t offered any details about whose pay is cut, by how much, or whether employees will be eligible for back pay if the lockout ends before games are canceled.
But for now, Falcons owner Arthur Blank can be added to the list of billionaire owners who are cutting the pay of their workers.
