The ULTIMATE Wage Cut!!!!!!



June 16, 2009 – Comments (6)

LONDON (AP) -- British Airways on Tuesday urged its staff to work for nothing in an effort to save the company money.

British Airways PLC is struggling to come up with ways to save cash after reporting its biggest full-year loss since the former national airline was privatized in 1987.

Expect this to become a more and more common request by employers as revenues evaporate and losses mount.

Alstrydomous warned you.....PREPARE!!!!!!

Those of you Fool bloggers that watch pig suggestion is you keep watching are not ready for reality......really not ready.

Evl and self,

Expect Obama to make such a request within the next twelve months....and expect this request to become more commonplace among all employers....we all must pitch in to bring spending in line with revenues .

There a few Fools that simply have very little creative deductive analytical guess it is from vegatative brain syndrome rotting their minds from watching too much T.V.

They tend to be critical of other Fools but are too chicken to state their names....whining is routine for people like this.  Moreover, they are always claiming they are the persecuted one when they are throwing wimpy punches all day long.

These are the kind of people that wet their pants when reality sets in only to find out that they are wound a bit too tight because they have been wearing underwear two or three sizes too small limiting their freedom of thought.

We don't have to mention names specifically....because if the underwear know who you are.

Expect UNemployment rates to SKYROCKET!!!!!

To be counted in REPORTED unemployment must be looking for a job.......expect the number of spouses and elderly to reenter the workforce to EXPLODE in coming months.

As John Mauldin pointed out in his latest weekly email, there is one segment of the American population that is actually seeing strong employment growth: Those who are 55+.

Specifically, older Americans and now getting out and getting not just one but sometimes two jobs.  And they're doing this against a backdrop of plummeting employment among the rest of the population.

Why are these folks suddenly working so hard to find work?

Because the value of their twin nest eggs--houses and stocks--has been demolished.

WOW!!!  Grandparents now competing with Grandkids for the same jobs!!!!!

I'm old enough to remember when the grandparents moved in with the kids when the going got tough for the elder generation.
