From the 1st of may, the teams in major league baseball who are experiencing financial difficulties as a result of the pandemic COVID-19 will be able to lay off their employees, with the exception of the players.
This is what has been reported to the site The Athletic, Sunday. The clubs will also be able to make salary reductions. Some teams, including the Atlanta Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies, are in spite of everything committed to paying their employees at least until may 31.
Commissioner Rob Manfred had already stated that the employees of the circuit shall receive their salary until the same date and that several members of management had agreed to a wage reduction of approximately 35 %.
Just like all the other great circuits of the sport in north america, the major leagues have suspended their activities on march 12, due to the pandemic.
