I am involved the industry, I am not saying minimum wage, but when 120,000 a year computer programming jobs are going to India for 25,000 and those left with jobs all took 20-40% paycuts you have to wake up to the reality of mis-valued supply and demand.
There are 1000's of pilots on the street furloughed. the supply exceeds demand therefore prices (wages) drop. it is simple economics. I don't like it either but it happens.
Flight attendants are always underpaid period they don;t need to EVER take a pay cut (in my mind). Same with ground workers.
the average FAMILY income in the US is 37,200 , a 150,000 salary which was cut from FROM 220,000 isn't so bad. Think of all the taxes that are saved
