American Airlines Asks Workers to do the Unthinkable

American Airlines wants its workers to work for free. At least for the summer.

According to The Daily Wire:

American Airlines is asking its employees to volunteer their time in order to help with the increase in travelers over the summer. 

The airline is requesting that its headquarters employees volunteer at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport this summer as more people head out of town to travel after the pandemic. 

“As we look forward to welcoming back more of our customers this summer, we know they’re counting on us to deliver a reliable operation and help them feel comfortable as they return after many months away from traveling,” American Airlines spokeswoman Sarah Jantz said in a statement, per the Tampa Bay Times. “That’s something our front-line teams are experts on as they regularly go above and beyond to take care of our customers. To ensure they have the support they need this summer and beyond, our corporate support teams will provide additional support at DFW.”

According to the Times, American Airlines isn’t making its workers volunteer, but if they do give up their time, they won’t be paid for the additional effort. They also must work the extra hours when they are not carrying out their regular requirements.

It appears they will provide assistance to passengers who need help.

Hope fully hanging out with hoffa…. the unions were never any good just a drain on companies, Of three Union companies I have worked for all were bankrupted by the union…. and We couldn’t even get on the Call out board,
for leads on jobs, Unions are the worst thing that have happened since the thirties, in the days of coal and rockefeller maybe they had a purpose now they are a scam, source of Income for the Dems, and an obstruction to education…. for the twenty first century young

Most of the airlines ARE unionized. IAM, Teamsters-Airline Division, and others. They are aware of their members discontent over this.

Just which socialists, in the Democrat Party are giving advice to the AA management? Is the management so stupid as to think that socialism (in ANY form) actually works? Where have they been for the last 100 years? It seems as though the present Democrat administration is proposing every socialist/Communist program they can dredge up, that’s failed in the old Soviet Union and all of the other lesser failures. Question? Is it time for a military take-over of the failed Democrat administration?

They ask and you say no. Simple as that. Am a retired A&P and I’d say no.

If they have to work for free, why can’t I FLY for free?

That makes absolutely no sense to ask employees to work for nothing, while CEOs and other higher ups sit on their butts and get paid. If I worked for the airlines, I would volunteer my time IF an CEO volunteered theirs. But until then, I have family to support and bills to pay.
Don’t ask someone to do something that you yourself won’t do.

Maybe instead of asking there to work for free management and the heads of the airlines should slash there high salaries and pay there workers they can afford it the lower paid workers cannot
