Northwest Mechanics Strike - my 2 cents
I can't be a Minnesota blogger and not comment on the Northwest mechanics strike.
What NW is doing to their mechanics is despicable. They are trying to say that if the mechanics don't take a huge pay cut, the airline will go bankrupt. Bullshit.
Instead of putting it all on the mechanics union, how about cutting a few executive salaries? How about taking away the CEO's Christmas bonus? Nah, can't do that.
I, for one, will not cross the picket line. Needless to say, I support the union, but additionally, I don't want to fly on a plane worked on by a bunch of half-ass mechanic scabs. I guess I'm just silly that way.
