Sixers reverse course on salary reductions following online backlash


Article Summary:

One day after making a decision to cut salaries for at-will employees for the Sixers and Devils – in addition to requesting the same from contracted employees – Joshua Harris reversed course on the decision in the face of mounting public pressure. While rostered players are working under much different salary rules than the rank-and-file staff, his commitment to stand behind other workers sent a huge message from their most powerful employee, helping to preserve some semblance of normalcy.

PhillyVoice was told Tuesday morning that some employees who were subject to salary reductions were presented with the news Monday alongside the suggestion that they would be better off than employees of other teams.

Harris’ decision may not stop owners around the league from making changes altogether, but it is an early win for the league’s rank-and-file employees during a time of severe financial uncertainty.
