Recently, Air Canada has gone on a hiring binge in a few select centres: YYC, YVR, YYZ and YUL. I can't understand why they would hire all these people and then lay them off in 3 months. Aren't there enough Canadian employees to help handle the Christmas rush? Does anybody know what type of guarantees these "new" employees are getting? It certainly wouldn't be good press for AC, if now they are bragging about hiring people, only to lay them off in Feburary or March?
