Most people are getting 2%-3% heck the NYPD just got 1%.Even the quart of oil you use every couple of days for your mustang will go up.Even the most jaded union clerk has to be blown away with it looks like we will be getting. And you getting your friend a job withh AA is how it should be done instead of the goverment setting the bar
Albert it's not completely about stars aligning. It's just going back to where we would have been if (AA) had not done concessions in 03. You do the math. We were at around $23 in 03. Now add 2% per year compounded onto that and what do you get? Yep around $30 per hour.
But anyway this has nothing to do with the topic of conversation. If you wind up making $30 stop being a cheapskate and shell out that extra buck for the Happy Meal and smile. Smile because you were fortunate enough to land a job that's going to put you at $30 when you probably have the same education as the guy working in that Wendy's upstairs. I can tell that you do.
