While other companies offer better WAWCON and some are offering retention bonuses, apparently Encore offered a free hot/cold beverage from Tim Hortons in Sep. So at least they’re doing something! Really appreciate the kind gesture. Makes me want to work at a company where employees are valued. Can you name any other company that does that?
Management doesn't understand sarcasm, so I will translate it for you.

We cannot live off of one coffee per year.
We cannot live off of a pancake a year.
We cannot pay rent with thank you videos.

Our CEO says "business comes first and we don't do stupid things" at the same time that he alienates pilots encourages them to leave through poor management.

Pilots are reporting sleeping in the crew room because they can't afford a hotel and being unable to afford basic necessities. We have a serious problem regarding low pay at Encore and it needs to be fixed yesterday.
Conditions at Encore are similar to Colgan Air when the accident happened in Buffalo. We need to push this to all the news channels.

The exodus is happening. Unfortunately leaving is not practicable for many pilots due to personal reasons.

I heard there’s another 6ish in the Sept 21 AC class. Mix of WEN/SWO

I don't understand who thinks these photoshops are funny. We get it, the pay in Canada sucks. No point spreading crap.
