In a note that was distributed via email to the board of directors and executive council Monday afternoon, CEO Wayne LaPierre announced that his organization "faces extraordinary challenges resulting from COVID-19" and must institute several workforce adjustments, including "the elimination of certain positions," imposing a four-day workweek for hourly employees and 20 percent pay reductions across the board "while maintaining current workloads."

How big a cut will LaPierre take?

WSJ says “more than 20%.” But the last time I heard ”pay reductions across the board ’while maintaining current workloads,’” the company was outa business in three months.

The company I work for may be the same. Our customer base is 98% restaurants and food service. We have customers closing their doors every day, some with no intention of ever reopening and others hoping that they will survive this shutdown.

The 20% pay-cut is required, but some people are voluntarily taking an even larger cut. This includes Wayne LaPierre.
