Employee Extortion disregard of labor laws
This company is the lowest paying industry and Flight Attendants are treated with the punish first, redeem yourself later principle. After a 4 week training you got nothing financially. They pay you with a $100 Gift Card after each week. The training mainly consist of required FAA Requirements. They don't teach you how to bid for lines or how the system works in General. You have to pay for your own uniforms and luggage. So 5 weeks in you still have not made a dime. Health Insurance plans are terrible and you pay 100% contributions. After you get to your base , you are pretty much on your own. They put you on Ready Reserve for 12 hours after being on Reserve for 1.5 hours. You only get paid for 5 hours. After taxes you make a meager $50 a day for sitting at the Airport for 12 hours. This is not an airline I would recommend working for. I don't know what the FA union is doing here, but this does not look right in regards to Labor Laws. I will definitely look into this.
