US Airways Asks Workers to Work for Free

Workers Ask US Airways to Suck Their Dicks

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Bankrupt US Airways on Wednesday said it is asking nonunion employees who are not scheduled to work over the New Year's weekend to volunteer to work for free at its Philadelphia operations.

I think it's just delightful that an airline so financially incompetent that it managed to emerge from one bankruptcy just in order to immediately go bankrupt again has the stones to ask, in bad times, its lowest-paid employees to work for nothing over the holidays. What do you think the reaction would be if, were US Airways a profitable airline, the employees asked management to pay them double to not work? Probably pretty good, I bet.
