Open Letter to Penland From June Perry

Agree. Their letter was very revealing. They obviously had some records of those employees, so why didn't they contact them to let them know they would be making things right? If was only when forced with the threat of being reported for illegal practices that they agreed to resolve it in house; and then they only gave lip service by doing as little as they thought they could get away with. 

They were not in compliance with the law by not keeping proper records, nor by not paying for overtime; and looking at their healthy financial state, it makes one wonder why they would treat artists so shabbily?? I certainly hope they have changed the way they do business, but after reading their letter, I doubt very much if there's been much of a shift there.
