I could take a 20% pay cut tomorrow and still pay all my bills, live in a decent place, and have nice things. Does that mean that I should just go ahead and let my employer have more money just because I don't "need" all of the money I'm making, even if I did have a love for data analysis? 'Course not.
Point taken. If your company was trying to do this to you, would you take a year off in protest until they agreed to keep paying you the same? At some point in this lockout, players will start losing in the long run. I have to think that guys who are 30+ have already given up more than they will get back.
