I have noticed a pattern here. When guys are more junior on the Seniority list they’re more willing to give up pay than be laid off. That’s understandable since who knows how long they could potentially be out if they voted themselves out. Sure they would come back to a higher paid gig but how much could they lose in the interim? Senior guys are more willing to throw the junior guys under the bus to keep their pay and benefits or even to get more. I guess it’s just a matter of when you’ve gotten high enough up that ladder you can pretty much tell when you’re in the clear that it’s not you who’s on the chopping block list any longer. When you were the Junior guy would you have been willing to go out for maybe a few years to come back to a higher paying job later? How many years would you have been ok with being out?
