Spoke like a true non professional, AMC and the Union have put the crews to senior pilots for years. If you want to stay at your base and make just enough to get by, not get actual par raises, have it.
The truth is, if you think the Union is getting any more pay after this, you are mistaken.
A raise is not just COLA, it's a life style change. I.E- You can afford more, not just maintain.
If you think a pilot with 15 years HAA experience should still be below 100K, either your a miltard with a retirement or a stupid civilian.
If you have 3500-5000 hours and 15 years of HAA experience and you are not making 150K, you are way off.
People like you ruin this industry, low pay, I want to stay home, don't want to sacrifice, i.e- move or be troubled to work hard.
Good Day to you Sir!
