NHL office staffers have been told by league commissioner Gary Bettman that they’ll be cut down to a four-day work week and will only receive 80 percent of their salary, reports the Canadian Press.

Bettman delivered the news Wednesday morning at a staff meeting in New York.

The commissioner, along with deputy commissioner Bill Daly, won’t receive any of their salary as long as the lockout continues.

    Bettman and Daly won’t get paid during the lockout, but they’ll get a nice fat bonus when it’s over. Plus, they don’t even have to work 4 day weeks during the lockout, because it’s not like they’re even trying to meet and negotiate with the NHLPA.
