Post Improving economy?...so long!

Now that carriers are offering FO contracts well below industry standard, what will happen when passenger confidence returns and pilot recruitment becomes what it was before.

I can see many a men causing problems for these carriers as they take their type rating and experience elsewhere as soon as things pick up again.

Isn’t this what management types refer to as a free market when it is in their interest and serves their purposes? Bummer when the beancounters cause the golden goose to be malnourished and the free market works against them. Even makes one desire a union contract to alleviate the ebb and flow of of it all.

Gimme a seniority number and a shot at the left seat.

All of this "conjecture" that the economy....and the salaries of flight crew will get better....well guys, NOT likely in the short to mid-term. Count your blessings that you have a job....at all.
And "unions"....well just look at the good they have done at CX, for example. Shot in the foot comes to mind.
