The only people who suffer from pay freezes are support staff. I mean, look at them salary bands! Hardly living in poverty are they! I hope other law firms follow suit and freeze pay for those with their own heads up their backsides and reward those that work to live instead! Happy days… Reply Link Dying firm 11 May 2013 at 12:58 Sounds like the firm is struggling. Time to jump ship Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
