LFC to continue paying casual staff during Premier League's hiatus
In an act of simple decency, Liverpool has announced that it will continue to pay all of the club's casual staff during the suspension of all top flight football.
The announcement today that the league would no get back underway until 30th April at least, means that the club will pay the wages for the next three home games. At least.
That means the LFC could be paying out around £750,000 to pay the wages of those staff, despite there being no top-flight football played at Anfield for the next 6 weeks.
Burnley, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa were those games, whilst Liverpool were due to play Everton, Manchester City and Brighton away from home during that time.
It now means that the Reds will play Arsenal next, if that match goes ahead at all, with those six games having to be rearranged.
In all likelihood, the suspension will last even longer, meaning that the club may continue this on for longer. But whatever happens, it is good to see the club supporting it's workers.
