Re: COST CUTTING

When company introduced pay cut on managers, ttheir take home pay will be reduced. By having the chance to go overseas to meet customers, daily allowance will be given. Hence actual amount of money received could be more than the normal salary after taken in the daily allowance.

However, not all managers will have the chance to go overseas to meet customers. As such take home pay will be lesser as compared to the one who goes to see customers. In the name of business trip, the managers' salaries (the one who goes overseas) will not be affected by the economic slowdown. Therefore it is not fair to the other managers who don't have the chance to go overseas to see customers but to suffer lesser pay. Don't you think that when company introduce cost cutting measures all managers must respond to the measures collectively? Workers too have to take unpaid leave due to shut down, hence lesser take home pay. Is it fair to other workers as well whose pay are very lower than managers? There should be leadership by example, right? Thanks.

I really don't see valid point to compare with managers who are required to go overseas. Do you think it is fair for them spend their own money for expenses incurred overseas, for the trouble of being away from home and so on?

PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT ALL EXPENSES ARE BORNED BY THE COMPANY - AIR FARE, ACCOMODATION, ENTERTAINEMNT. BESIDES, THIS DAILY ALLOWANCE IS ALSO GIVEN WHICH GOES TO THE PERSONAL POCKET IF HE DOESNT SPEND FOR HIS OWN PURPOSE. THE POINT IS HE CAN KEEP THE DAILY ALLOWANCE AND USE IT FOR HIS OWN FAMILY EXPENSES!!! IN SHORT, THIS DAILY ALLOWANCE IS MEANT FOR PERSONAL EXPENSES! THIS AMOUNT WILL BE CLAIMED UPON RETURN TO THE COMPANY. WHATEVER EXPENSES THAT NEED TO BE INCURRED RELATING TO THE BUSINESS IS 100% PAID FOR BY THE COMPANY. ALL EXPENSES WILL BE REIMBURSED ACCORDING TO THE BILLS PRESENTED TO THE COMPANY.
