What I cannot understand is the market place for jobs in airlines is crammed full, people with the I will do anything attitude.
Surely the airlines must know this, and what would stop them lowering salarys to much lower amounts i.e 18,000 for FO and 30,000 for a captain???
if demand is so high why dont they take advantage of this?
Sure it would but a lot of people off training to become pilots but it may even out the job to pilot ratio.
I had a restaurant in the UK before comming to OZ, when I did my interviews I had a medium responce, but if I had applications comming out my arse and people throwing money at training programs it would put me in a position to say "hold on a second demand is high Im going to knock the salary down here.
on the other hand if you are finding it hard to employ people demand would be low, so you would need to increase the salary to attract candidates.
I am in no way supportive of low salarys, but if your in buisness and you have a job market like the airlines why dont they cash in?
