Heeha the only people I have met who complain about it are those who have never had a "real" job in their lives. They most likely lived a sheltered life, never had a job in high school or college and immediately went into the airlines out of college or with very minimal instructing. First year pay sucks but everyone knows that.

The only way you avoid getting furloughed is getting lucky. It might happen early on or late in your career. So far I've been lucky but I've only been at the airlines for 6 years.

It is my opinion that we are witnessing the unintended consequences of the singular mission of education elitists of sending all students to college. Our national infrastructure is in desperate need of repair and upgrade. These are the jobs that cannot be exported yet we continue to send too many students to college to pursue degrees for jobs with few prospects, security, or real value.

With the number of national disasters we have experienced over the past few years it should be a wake up call to develop the programs necessary to support these critical societal needs.
Let's get back to general trade school education please. There's another great forum about jobs here: http://www.city-data.com/forum/work-employment/ And there's a good chance this thread may migrate over there too. ...
Please follow THESE rules.
