Earlier this week the Oakland Athletics informed employees of pay cuts and furloughs headed their way on Monday. A’s podcast host, Adam Copeland, joins Kate Scott to explain who will be impacted by the cuts, what the cuts and furloughs look like, why A’s owner John Fisher felt the need to issue a public apology for the cuts, and how the A’s actions compare to those of other teams around Major League Baseball.
