So, at the root of it, they've just made their jobs much easier, which is the purpose of any bureaucracy - whether it be private or government. I don't think the USTA officials will take a 50% or 75% pay cut.
Of course much of the work for the actual tournaments is done by volunteers or people paid a pittance who do it for the love of the game. Guess they are out of luck, too.
