While I have never personally experienced a pay cut, I've seen the impact upon those who have. Interestingly, temporary reductions in salary due to business conditions were fairly well received when the rationale for the action was clearly communicated and all employees, not just a segment, participated. Even more interesting, temporary pay cuts actually resulted in more focus and better alignment in the workforce, perhaps because they now had some real 'skin' in the game.
