Auto industry fiasco is over. What's next you ask ?
Well here come the airlines with their problems.. British Airways today but which American airlines will follow suit ?

BBC NEWS | Business | BA asks staff to work for nothing

snippet:
"British Airways is asking thousands of staff to work for nothing, for up to one month, to help the airline survive.

The appeal, sent by e-mail to more than 30,000 workers in the UK, asks them to volunteer for between one week and one month's unpaid leave, or unpaid work."
