Pinnacle workers...grow some balls, and shut that damned airlines down.

Stop working for that crappy airline, but it out of business, and do something new for a living.

The airline business ain't what it use to be.

There is no sense working for McDonald wages and benifits.

Gee, you could say the same thing about UAL pilots. Their wages were cut by 40%, thousands were laid off, work rules were suspended and most of their pensions were lost. Yet, AWUP is still there five years later! So much for your principles. Why don't you practice what you preach? Mc Donald's is hiring!

It's so easy to give advice. A crapy wage still puts food on the table.

The picnic table because your house is gone. WAKE UP..... You get paid less, you can't afford expensive. Stores cut prices to meet your needs. How do stores profit? Cheaper venders, lower wages for employees, more benefit costs passed on to employees, benefits cut. Now because of this your nieghbor has trouble too. The need for profit, and greed up top has almost finished off the middle class. When thier cash cow dries up it will get ugly. Another round of bail outs to business, from where. Our trillions upon trillions broke governmemt. Parents thruout generation have always tried to provide for thier kids, so they could have a better life. At this rate, my grandkids are screwed, and there is nothing anyone can do about it until there crooks in the tall towers are held responsible for thier poor chices

Stop the rationalization, that somehow I should continue working for crappy wages and no benefits, simple to put food on the table.

Either put your money where your mouth is, and quit, if youíre unhappy, or shut the hell up and go back to work, and continue to be a whore!

I've always said airline pilots are the only group of college educated idiots, who continue to go to work with crappy wages, and no benefits, a union that is ineffective, and yet they continue to whine, instead of quitting enmass and leaving the industry, bringing the US transportation industry and this economy to its knees.

I guess they just want to go to work wearing their white shirts and pretty little epaulets.

Then we can go back to a regulated industry.

All hope is NOT lost, young man! Vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in 2012! Abandon the CLOSET Muslim BHO and his ilk in 2012 and vote for a real American! Romeny will make more American Jobs cut taxes and send the illegals back to the dark corners of the earth from which they came! AA's problems are a direct result of the Obama"nation" himself. Vote right, vote Romney and Ryan for 2012 for YOUR FUTURE and your children and GRANDCHILDREN!

Surely you jest...... read this.Thatís likely because Bainís tactics -- both during and after Romneyís tenure at the firm -- have been the target of criticism since the Republican started running for president. Such critics allege Bain has put its own profits ahead of the good of the companies it tried to turnaround in the past. Bain Consultings main recommendation is to outsource. Outsource means cut American jobs, or cut good paying jobs and replace them with minimum wage employees. If he runs the country like a company this cannot improve
