Why are major league baseball players, managers,
waterboys, management types paid a markedly higher wage than
their minor league counterparts? Media contracts,
sponsor endorsements, sales of other staples(uniforms,
hats, shoes, etc.) worth hundreds of millions of
dollars. Minor leagues have perhaps a few 100,000 dollars
in revenue(most of that comes from a majors
sponsorship), major leagues get 100's of millions, a larger
revenue pie. Are the major leaguers that much better than
their minor counteparts in their profession for what
they get in pay and compensation? Arguably not or
maybe so depending who you talk to.
Why are the
employees here at Delta paid what they are paid compared to
smaller airlines(regionals, charters, etc.)? A
multi-billion dollar company vice million dollar companies or
less. A larger revenue pie.
Delta, depending on
which quarter you look at, is turning a 10-12.5 percent
profit margin, American and United are turning 6-7
percent profit margins(Please correct these numbers if
they are wrong but I believe these are good ballpark
figures). Delta is aprox. 50-100 percent more profitable
than its competitors, with a low debt load of 30/70
debt to equity. If Delta lowered its profit margin to
6-7 percent it would still be competitive. Lowering
the profit margin could be done by giving all Delta
employees a 25-50 percent raise(Non-contract and Union and
yes management can still get their 100 % + bonuses)
and Delta would still be able to grow and remain
competitive. Pilots have figured this out(After 7.5 many
non-contract people have also). If you non-contract types get
on board with the pilots, we(All Delta Employees)
may be able to make this happen. If you feel that you
are fairly compensated considering the profitability
of Delta, then continue with the "misery loves
company" pilot bashing campaign. With or witho
July results seemed to be extremely strong
despite commentary in the beginning of the month that
that would not be the case due to a pseudo-slowdown
which the pilots were supposedly undertaking. What is
the reason for this?
you are right . i am only a customer. a pretty
damn good one. a strike will force me to make other
travel arrangements. i might get used to flying
USAIRways or midway or LUV. after you strike you may get
more per hour but there will be less employees and
certainly fewer customers. Delta had my business by
default, only pbi-bos non stop. but things are a changing.
Usairways will have 3 non-stops a day between bos-pbi. Your
attitude reaLLY SUCKS. dELTA EMPLOYEES LIKE YOU CAN ONLY
MAKE MY AIRTRAN INVESTMENT INCREASE. I would hate too
see DELTA go down the tubes at least until i use up
my FF miles.
i have 972,000 miles
lifetime on delta but according to you i can have no
Telling Delta's non-contract employees about our
business as to lawfully organizing is none of your
business as is telling me to go somewhere else to work.
Further more you stated you are not employed at Delta so
your opinion on the subject does not count. So with
all that said why don't you go back to your 8 man New
England cottage industry shlockhouse and mind your own
Not only are you a presuming "dumb guy mechanic"
but also suffer from delusions of grandeur. So your
36 years old and have been a stereotypical "dumb guy
mechanic" for 19 years so that means Delta hired you at age
17. Ahhh!, your a bullshit artist as well!

Is that not an insult? It's okay for you to insult
me, but it's okay to take what I say and twist it up
and pull an insult out of it? That's kinda dense....
