Philadelphia 76ers ownership made a truly terrible decision to cut the salaries of their full-time employees by 20 percent amid the coronavirus pandemic. As you’d expect, this was met with a great deal of anger on social media from Sixers fans and NBA fans alike. Businesses need to do their best to stand by employees in unprecedented times like this. And billionaire owners certainly shouldn’t be looking to save a bit of cash for themselves at the expense of people who need their full income to get by.
Now, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski has reported a positive update, that the Sixers have decided to completely change course again and will be paying employees their full salaries.
