Open Letter to Penland - Repay the Artists

The issue is what is the objective standard for proper compensation? It is the agreement between the employer and the employee working within the scope of the law of the land. 

In this case, Penland SHOULD resolve ALL PAST CLAIMS WITHOUT REGARD TO DATE WHEN CALLED UPON BY THE OFFENDED.

It is fine to employ one on any terms over the minimum required by law. The problem is that Penland did NOT DO WHAT IS RIGHT: 
1) Investigate all past illegal payment of overtime
2) Make a good faith effort to contact ALL OFFENDED.
3) Leave OPEN THE DATE TO MAKE A LEGITIMATE CLAIM.
4) Settle ALL CLAIMS OBJECTIVELY.
5) Make a WRITTEN PUBLIC ACKNOWLEGEMENT and APOLOGY.
6) Ensure that all future employment contracts meet minimum LEGAL STANDARDS.
