Boyd got an email yesterday saying that now that he was a wage earner instead of salaried (due to new federal regulations imposed last year, that his company overlooked), his base pay would be 27% lower than what it had been previously. When he called they made noises on the order of ‘no, we aren’t REALLY going to cut your pay, the lower rate is just a placeholder while we get things sorted, and we’ll make up the difference in bonuses’.
Boyd’s response was: ‘Great, glad to hear it. As soon as you get that to me in writing, I will go to work for you again.’
Lissa’s been doing really well, though. (Hopefully I haven’t screwed that up by letting her attend a New Year’s party last night.)
