SuperchargedRS, millennial or not you're for sure one entitled specimen. Making history by shaking the rules of the neoliberal capitalist system from your little pilot base in Canada. Wow!
Get a grip mate, don't call yoursefl part of those ''better/real men'' yet. What hurts this industry far more than the money situation is people with your kind of attitude and lack of personal integrity.
Thanks for bragging about everything you have, but remember, ''you don't Own those things, they Own you''.
You're using words that I don't think you understand the meaning to, or perhaps you don't understand what I've said here.
I am very much NOT entitled, I do not believe I am entitled to anything beyond my basic constitutional rights, I've also been called quite a few things, liberal is not often one of them lol
the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.
I'm lacking integrity??? When others yearn to scamper across the boarder to eat American pilots' scraps vs putting their own house in order?
I lack integrity when I'm working (and winning) at increasing the pay of myself and my coworkers, while also making the company a good deal of money?
Here's the deal, I'm not entitled to the companies money, and the company is not entitled to my piloting services, however with negotiation and leverage on both sides we meet at a place that both sides find acceptable, I fly for them and make them money, I in turn get some of their money, the company can refuse to accept my offer and pay me what I think is fair, just as I can refuse to fly for them if I don't think their offering is fair.
And as per your soclaist bum like statement, no I own my stuff, and frankly it's all just toys and things which I use as an instrument of adventure, or shelter, or utlitly, I could pile all my cars and planes and home and everything else together and burn it, wouldn't change my self image or worth, not one damn iota.
See we're back to this self flagellation that Canadians and socialists seem to hold to some high regard, as if having some bum lifestyle, where you roam the earth with no possessions or ambition has become trendy, you talk down your profession, are ashamed of your successes, etc, etc
IMO It's a f'ing mental disorder
So now it's your turn, turn off your TV, step back from your timmys, and talk with your fellow pilots; if you think you're under compensated, find a unified voice and a unified list of reasonable wants and go talk to management, they can always say no, you can always not fly for them, or you both meet somewhere in the middle, moving forward don't take jobs that pay for crap and those companies will ether pay more or go out of business.
You're responsible for your own future, take charge and make it a good one.
