The Perfectly Equal Society
« on: Mar 14 06 11:57 »
[font face="VERDANA, HELVETICA" size="2"]The Perfectly Equal Society:  In January, Canada's human rights commission was authorized by the Supreme Court to resume consideration of a union's claim that Air Canada's flight attendants (who are mostly women) are just as valuable, and therefore should be paid the same, as its pilots and mechanics (mostly men).
[/font][font face="VERDANA, HELVETICA" size="2"]
From the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. News, 1-26-06[/font]
[hr style="width: 100%; height: 2px;"]Maybe it's just me, but if I had to choose who had the more "valuable" job in the airline industry I think I'd pick the pilot over a flight attendant. I have nothing against flight attendants but the truth is they're considered "optional equipment" when it comes to flying a plane. [font face="VERDANA, HELVETICA" size="2"] [/font]

unless they are trained in flying a plane then I think they have a gripe. Otherwise, not so much.

I always wonder why flight attendants don't get tipped as other servers in other industries

get a grip indeed.

airline mechanics - up to 3 years post secondary education.responsible for the plane safety and souls onboard

pilots - up to 3 years post secondary.responsible for the plane and souls on board.

airline host(ess) - no post secondary.responsible for serving food and seating customers,supplying blankets and earphones.basic safety training.

I'm surprised they're not asking to be paid more than the pilots- after all, the only thing the pilot does is fly the plane. And they get to sit down while they do it, those slackers!

Keep in mind that the commission has only been authorised to consider the claim. If I claim that my paperboy should be paid the same as my neurosurgeon  the commission could consider the claim. Doesn't mean they have to find any merit in that claim.

That is whacked....I'd rather pay the people that fly and fix the planes more than the people that throw a bag of peanuts at me or roll their eyes when I ask for a blanket because the cabin is freaking freezing....

Yes I realize they are our safety line in case of a crash, but still, it is the pilots and the mechanics who keep the plane from crashing...
