6. but why work for nothing?
I don't know how a person can afford to work for US Airways as it is.

I read an article in USA Today about pilots having to take second jobs. Don't know about you but I want my pilots and support personnel well-rested.

I don't want someone in a state of exhaustion doing maintenance on my airplane.

These folks need to be paid a decent wage, and I just don't see how they can tolerate any more cuts.
