There's a certain amount of truth to what your saying Josh. Look at it this way. Places like BOS, NYC/Penn, PHL, WAS, CHI, LAX,OAK, Wilmington DE. (maint), Beech Grove, IN. (maint.), SEA will ALWAYS be UNIONIZED, just like (for AA), mostly the same cities. The Trick is (And I DID it with Amtrak, and AA), get firmly planted in one of those huge operations, as I did in ORD/CHI !!
