MLS Cutting Pay of Top Executives, Some Staff
Major League Soccer plans to cut the pay of some executives and front office personnel while the season is on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic. MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Deputy Commissioners Mark Abbott and Gary Stevenson will take 25% cuts in salary starting April 16. Other cuts would range from 20% to 10% for managerial staff. Lower salaried employees, like entry-level hires, would see no reduction in pay.
