Dolphins hack at five-figure salaried employees

In a blow to the NFL’s middle class, the Miami Herald reports some bad news for the day-to-day Dolphins employees – namely, substantial pay cuts.

During a Tuesday afternoon organization meeting, team executives blamed the lockout for the need to cut the salaries of those making $75,000 by 20 percent, those making between $50,000 and $74,999 by 15 percent, and those making less than $50,000 by 10 percent.

Apparently, the employees’ salaries will return to normal levels when the lockout ends, but there’s a big question on whether the Dolphins will return lost wages to the employees.

Reached by the paper, team spokesman Harvey Greene said, “We’re a private company. We don’t comment publicly about our internal practices.”

More from the Herald:

During the meeting, the team blamed lagging season ticket sales – basing those struggles on the lockout rather than 2010’s dismal team performance – for the need to slash salaries, according to sources.

In the wake of the news, blame is being tossed around internally among employees, causing a clear decrease in employee morale, sources said.

Yes, I would imagine so. And it’s yet another reason to hope for a speedy end to what has been a pretty disastrous lockout, because this decision is pretty shameful.

In this particular circumstance I'll toss some slack towards the owner.  If all production ceased where I work, I'd consider myself fortunate with a 20% cut in comparison to being laid-off completely.  Of course my morale would be down, but other folks have surely faced a much harsher reality these last 3 years.

The Dolphins owner is cheap as heck. That's why he's been selling shares of his ownership to douchebag celebs. It's become a joke under Ross.

The Dolphins ownership has no class.  How can they cut salaries of the people who do the day to day business activities?  The judge has to rule in favor of the players and dump the lockout.  It would be nice of Roger Goodell would condemn this practice, but he won't.  IS this the NFL's way of getting back at the players byholding others hostage?  This tactic of cutting the pay of lower earning employees is only a sign of greedy rich billionaires.  Lift the lockout already and get back to work.  These whining little babies are are taking out their court room frustrations on the little guys who have nothing to do with this.  Why don't you Dolphin owners sell the team and go perform some unnatural act on yourselves?

I'm a fins fan but that is down right dirty by the ownership. I'm  a diehard football fan but this lockout is starting to make my blood boil.

I was sitting on the fence, but now I am firmly entrenched with the players.  Take away 10% of an owner's profit and he has a bad year.  Take away 10% of an employee making less than $50k a year and a family might go hungry (literally). 

Message to the Owners:  Fix this or you will not have any fans left to even pay for a bad year and then you can figure out where your next meal will come from when your league folds due to a fan revolt.

Sickening.
