I hope older members of all workgroups take a long, hard look at retirement in the next few weeks. Not only would it eliminate some of the elderly stews, it would also have the added benefit of saving AA even more dollars as the older, topped out workers hang it up.
Make room for the younger, perhaps less bitter, employees.

In our work group you are topped out in your 15th year. So anyone beyond that point is basically making the same pay.
True. But since it''s obvious that more furloughs are on the way (look for AA to shrink some more), massive retirements would be good for the bottom line since furloughs generally come from the bottom and retirement of elderly generally come from the top. In fact, if the top half retired this year, they could be replaced with those currently on furlough and by some new hires (at the cheapest wages).
