Royals won’t lay off or furlough baseball operations employees despite MLB uncertainty

With unemployment nationwide reaching historic levels and the professional sports landscape at a relative standstill, Kansas City Royals ownership and management have taken steps to avoid layoffs and furloughs amid Major League Baseball’s uncertain future.

Royals general manager Dayton Moore confirmed an ESPN report Friday afternoon that the club has opted to institute tiered pay cuts at the upper levels of executive pay, including Moore’s salary, to avoid cutting employees.

Nice going Royals.
Rather than have Moore keep all of his 40 times the lowest employee's salary and that guy now get nothing, have Moore get 30 times that guy's money. He'll survive.

Wait, how much does Dayton Moore make?

Royals ownership just went into debt to pay the $1 billion sales price for the club, and haven't enjoyed any of the good revenues of the last few seasons, so if they can do this in small market KC, any team can do this.

The new ownership is making a good impression.
