Seriously tho (if you can be serious about a $1 payday)...they really shouldnt have done that. In a business where perception counts for ALOT, this is just an absolutely bonehead thing to do.
Giving a guy a $1 isn't paying him (thank you Cpt. Obvious) it's insulting him, like leaving your waitress a penny. It says "No, I didnt forget...I remembered & what I remember is; you suck"
Its likely something from the bean-counters in thier front office that says "all fighters must get paid". Someone should have used thier head & trumped the bean-counters with the ever-uncommon "common sense". They are trying to gain credibility for thier organization, and this provides a totally unnecissary reason to laugh at them (If you doubt this, I refer you to the previous replies).
Good move, bean-counters. Next time, someone remind them that "policies" are made to protect the corp...if they hurt the corp, they need to be disregarded.
