That's usually the first steps when a company files bankruptcy and is re-organizing.

Look on the positive side. The company/corporation hasn't shutdown, yet.

But just wait until the 'New' American leadership implements their restructuring plan. These recent cutbacks may pale in comparison to the coming cutbacks.

Why would there jobs be secure? USAir Execs are filling most of the positions under Parker. I guess you missed that memo !
