The Tribe has taken the next step to take care of their full-time, non-uniformed employees, as they will pay those employees through the month of June.
ESPN MLB insider Jeff Passan reported Friday the news of the Indians moving forward to pay the employees.
He also reported that both part-time workers and interns with the franchise have been furloughed, that way they can apply for unemployment benefits.
The Cleveland Indians have committed to paying a majority of their full-time employees their full salaries through at least June 30, sources tell me and @kileymcd. Forty senior staff members agreed to pay cuts to help ensure the full salaries of the rest of the full-time staff.

Cleveland.com’s Paul Hoynes reported Friday evening that many of the front office staff will take a pay cut to help pay those full-time employees.
Hoynes said that “all parts of the organization” took pay cuts to make sure to keep those full-time employees employed through June.
As of now, the Indians are one of the few teams that has committed to paying their full-time employees through June, most have only committed to pay their employees through the month of May.
