Because it would be one more roadblock to
profitability,and More "collective" bargaining on
the horizon, where management gives and unions take, until we get to where we are today. Anyone notice any shrinkage
in the number of airlines?

Balony. They still pay their exec's very well. When management takes, it is all right?

Mr_Bill, you're a lousy Topix editor.

How about a source that actually describes the issue, and not just the side you support?

Yes, you have certainly been proven correct, and it is not baloney. They are both pillaging, as Detroit will attest to.
At the end of the day the union workers will be unemployed. In England
my understanding is that the government watches executive
pay closely so that it does not get out of hand and and help ruin a company. Not a bad idea.
