Took less than 30 days to obtain draconian wage and benefit cuts 7 years ago. But now they refuse to bargain in good faith! I believed the pull together win together scam for almost 2 years. This is not the AA I hired on with 25 years ago. Back then they truely cared about employees and we were family. I proudly wore AA T shirts and jackets and bought many for families and friends. Now I am ashamed to wear my uniform off the airport and will not stop on the way home with it on! Who would of thought that the Crandall years would become the good old days? He was a bastard many siad. But he was a smart, honest bastard and we respected him. Even local management has become as dispondant as the workers. This airline like this country has become the have and the have nots!! Upper management is so out of touch that they believe it is morally correct to accept million dollar bone us's while we all suffer for almost a decade!! And wonder why moral is by far the lowest is has ever been!! No one gives %100 anymore. Everyone has second jobs and they are tiered and bitter with AA. I wish this was still the airline that I hired on with!!!! It is truely sad that is has come to this due to corporate greed.
