USFlyer said:There's another side to the coin - I don't know what industry you're in but let me ask you this -as, say, a 15-year professional near the top of your game should you happen to be furloughed or simply choose to go elsewhere do you start all over again at the bottom? Maybe three thousand bucks a month, no vacation, no stock, no relocation allowance, etc...?N628AU said:No offense to the senior US employees, but your work groups are way too "old" relative to other carriers. Some will say all the furloughs caused this. This is true, but it's the way in which furloughs are required to be handled that resulted in this situation. In my industry, for example, we layoff at all seniority levels to avoid being too top heavy.
