Wild staff brace for 20 percent pay cuts
November 27, 2012
By The Associated Press
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Wild staff will take a 20 percent reduction in pay next month, unless league owners and players settle their issues by then.
Wild spokesman Aaron Sickman confirmed employees were told of the cutbacks in a company-wide meeting Tuesday, when the lockout reached its 73rd day. All NHL games have already been canceled through Dec. 14. Wild staff will begin four-day, 32-hour work weeks starting Dec. 9 and see their paychecks reduced beginning Dec. 28, if no new collective bargaining agreement is in place. No layoffs have been ordered, at this point.
When the lockout began, Wild executives and other staff making more than $70,000 annually took pay cuts between 30 and 35 percent of their earnings. Sickman said those reductions remain in place.
