Dodgers staff checks bounce, get reissued

It’s more funny than dire, unless you happen to be a part-time Dodgers employee.

As a result of the Dodgers filing for bankruptcy on Monday, the team’s accounts were frozen for 48 hours.  Dodger Stadium security guards and ushers due to be paid on Monday and Tuesday, at least those not using direct deposit to receive their funds, had their paychecks bounce.

Dodger spokesman Josh Rawitch said the funds were always there to cover the checks, they just weren’t able to be used.  With the 48-hour freeze expired, new checks were issued on Wednesday.

Hopefully they included a little something extra for the hassle.

    Once worked for a retailer who had this problem. They had made the silly error of having us put the bank deposit in the same account as the paychecks. Go to the teller’s window, and Voila!- cash in, cash out.
    Challenge for those concerned- watch where the armored truck goes. You know, the Nixon way.

    “Hopefully they included a little something extra for the hassle.”

    Oops, sorry. All of that little something extra just went to pay toward a chateau in the south of France.

    Does McCourt not have any friends to tell him how big an asshole he’s being?

      People like McCourt are so completely and utterly insulated from what’s going on in the real world that they have no idea. I recommend you watch the segment about Prince on “An Evening with Kevin Smith” (you can get it on Netflix) to get an idea of what I’m talking about. Smith crystallizes it beautifully.

      He might not care much, either, but all of his public statements, trying to portray him as a poor, downtrodden victim of mean ol’ Bud, make me think that he does, at least to an extent.

    McCourt is a class act as always, not paying the people that work hard for a living and depend on their paycheck.

      Notice how the blog didn’t say anything about old Frankie boys housekeeping and gardening staffs for his mansions spread throughout the world having their paychecks bounce?
