Are backstretch workers paid hourly or just a flat rate as contract employees?
When I hotwalked for a Summer, it was hourly. That was at Woodbine for a trainer who only had 8-10 horses though.

The Chad Brown-trained Almanaar wins the $200k Monmouth Stakes. If my math is correct, that works out to each of his employees getting $0

Even after reading it I sincerely doubt Chad himself is doing payroll. Does the president of your company do it? Someone he hired likely did it for him. Nowhere did I say it was an ooops. Someone was clearly negligent.

How backstretch workers are treated in my opinion is looooow.

Had to offset the workers comp premium somehow!
In the Chad Brown barn, whoever is responsible for payroll is a cheat. Chad's barn is one of the elite who could easily afford to pay any overhead costs.

I think it's pretty interesting that there are many who initially thought it couldn't be, not Chad Brown, must be some dumb employee working for him, there's no way he'd intentionally screw staff, take advantage of 'em etc.

I can only assume the same leniency will apply when/if the Baffert barn gets caught by the federales.

This is one of my recent favorites, in response to what the jock said about the PETAs in the audience at the last CHTB meeting. He truly is a funny guy.
