    That msg board sucks..

    If ALK (Horizon) pays so bad, then why stay
    there? Am I missing something? If I thought I wasn't
    being paid a reasonable wage for the work I was
    performing, I would be finding a new job. Yet you have been
    with Horizon for 15 years! IF ALK pays so much lower
    than the other airlines, I suspect its pilots would
    have left already for greener pastures. And why is the
    US Air Force losing so many of its pilots who are
    leaving to secure jobs as pilots in commercial aviation?
    It can't be because the pay is so bad. It seems that
    pilots at every airline spend a lot of time complaining
    about their pay. But they never seem to go elsewhere.
    Just maybe it is because their jobs are superior to
    just about anything else out there.
