Former MAG employees awarded £42,000

The Motorcycle Action Group has been told to pay three former employees more than £42,000 following their resignations. M.A.G.

Top of the flops

Their latest get-rich-quick scheme was to promote some generic rock ballad to the membership, exhorting them to nag their colleages, friends and family into buying it.  Apparently if it got into the top 40 then some magical money fairy would shower a bounty on MAG using the profits from a gig tour later this year.

Apparently MAG have never heard that in the entertainment industry, there are never any profits, at least not ones that get paid out to people on a percentage of the net.

Ah well.  In the event, it apparently made it into the provisional top 100 last Thursday and there was a final big push to get just 3200 more downloads before Saturday in order to get into that vital top 40.

Sadly, MAG had also not figured on any other tracks between 40 - 99 getting any more purchases, and it dropped right out of the top 100.  Total wash, except for those who had the dubious pleasure of listening to whomever-it -as yowling on about whatever-it-was.

What has any of this got to do with biking, I hear you ask?

Well, not a damn thing as far as I can see.

business?

MAG describing themselves as a business says it all. An "organisation" not worth joining.

According to the press MAG has made an appeal about 3 weeks ago. So I quess this isn't the end of this sorry story. Reading into the background & between the lines so to speak the 3 persons named don't exactly come out of this to well either, ie running another busineess in MAG's time, falling to attend meetings etc.

MAG themselves didn't handle the issues they were trying to deal with very well, if they had the mag3 would have got nothing.
