And I Thought My Employer Was a #@&$*!

Employer Advises Dumpster-Diving for Axed Workers, courtesy of the Houston Chronicle 's chron.com. From the "booklet...part of a 150-page packet to ground workers, such as baggage handlers, whose jobs will likely be cut after their union agreed to allow the airline to outsource some of their work":
  • The four-page booklet, "Preparing for a Financial Setback" contained suggestions such as shopping in thrift stores, taking "a date for a walk along the beach or in the woods" and not being "shy about pulling something you like out of the trash." [emphasis added--would you go on a date in the woods alone without the National Guard?]
  • "If you have saved some money, pat yourself on the back -- you deserve it," the booklet reads. "Take out only what you need and spend prudently."

I wonder if the sleazeball CEOs get a copy -- or follow those rules -- when they get axed.

How did i know that it was Minnesota's very own NorthWorst airlines before i even clicked the link?

The way they managed to defang their unions is a text book case of why labor should never give an inch.

How depressing, but even worse, not surprising.
