Really, ICM?

Strike-Prepping ICM Tells Employees Not To Freak Out When Half Of Their Paycheck Disappears, from Defamer.

Dear Colleagues,

On Friday, November 16th, all employees will receive a paycheck that reflects one week's pay, as opposed to the usual two. This is not a salary reduction. It is simply a change in the timing of when we pay our employees.

We had planned to implement this change to a more customary payroll schedule at the end of December, but with a potential strike on the horizon, implementing this payroll change immediately provides the agency with more financial flexibility.

We know that, for some of you, this may cause some short-term financial challenges, and we wanted to give you as much notice as possible.

Human Resources is available to answer any of your questions.

Thank you,
Human Resources
International Creative Management

My first question would be, "If you don't want to pay me, then why am I still working here?"


Also: Really, Fox?

Fox Preparing For Possible Strike By Pissing Off Its Assistants, from Defamer.

Over at Fishbowl LA, a disgruntled employee laments that Fox has decided to cut back on assistant overtime to help lessen the financial burden of a strike while leaving their bosses' expense accounts untouched...

Feel the love, people.
