Football second division FC Schalke 04 has apparently provided for the case of missed rewriting economically. According to information from the WAS, more than half of the approximately 650 employees have agreed to give up parts of their salary if the royal blue should not return to the Bundesliga immediately. Thus, operational terminations are for the time being from the table. The salary balance is WAS for cuts of five to 15 percent. Employees with low income are not affected. Through the commitments of the employees, a high six-digit sum saved. Previously, there had already been large-scale austerity measures. Professional budget had already been reduced from around 80 to 20 million euros. Thus, in an emergency, another year is financed in the second league, it is said in the report.
