Jets Make Employees Take Unpaid Leave
There was an interesting article in Newsday today about how the Jets are making their employees take a two week unpaid leave this off-season.
The New York Jets are telling employees on the business side of the team’s operations to take two weeks of unpaid leave this offseason, rather than cut jobs as several other teams and the league office have done in recent weeks.
The team announced the plan Thursday to employees, who’ll take two-week furloughs during a four-week period in late-June and early July, Matt Higgins, the team’s executive vice president of business operations, told The Associated Press.
Luckily the Jets are letting the coaching staff work during these tough times.
The departments affected include marketing, media relations, finance and business operations. Employees on the football side, such as general manager Mike Tannenbaum and coach Rex Ryan, aren’t included in the plan.
Just one more reason to believe that the PSL sales are not going well.
