Promise Keepers Fires Staff

The Promise Keepers, a male-only, right-wing Christian group, announced that it will fire its entire staff due to a financial crisis. “Promise Keepers today gave its staff six weeks notice that they will be paid until March 31 and no further. As stable and sufficient donations are received, re-staffing will occur,” said a statement from the group.

The group previously charged a $60 attendance fee to its events, which contributed to 72 percent of its income. Last year Promise Keepers officials decided to stop charging admission to the rallies, counting on donations alone.
