Glass Half Empty or Half Full

RTÉ staff in line for unpaid leave as part of €41m savings plan.  80% of 319 staff on management pay grades voted in favour of voluntary pay cuts, The Irish Times writes, whilst, The Irish Independent favours a pessimistic 20% of RTÉ managers vote against salary cuts.  The glass seems to be half empty, or four/fifths with one Irish newspaper.

I thought this was good news for RTÉ as they seek to cut payments for the troubled public sector broadcaster, as I would have opted for the more democratic, and positive outcome of The Irish Times report.
