Subject: RE: Payday

MTAS was asked about changing the “Payday” date. This Friday is “payday.” The work week ends on Saturday. The city can think about “holding back” pay for a week – or, since most are paid bi-weekly, to “hold back” pay for two weeks. The city will also need to consider when to start this process, what kind of burden it might place on those in the transition, and the seasonal park concession stand workers.

Using holding back a week provides necessary time for any adjustments. Let me check around and see if we have done any surveys on this.

This is an older letter, but much of it would still apply if not all. See attached.
