So I have a question. Why do we keep asking for concessions back when the company is losing money? It seems like the last time we got compensation back there was a round of lay offs shortly thereafter. It doesn’t make sense to me that we ask to not have furloughs and to get more money back at the expense of people losing their jobs. It actually makes me worried when they agree to a raise or re-compensation for pay cuts it makes me feel like the next thing down the pike are layoffs!! Of course I would love a pay increase and not to have furloughs but on the other hand if it meant keeping my job I would choose to have them.
This comment was for the guild not for the Benefit for Andrea!!! SOOOOOO SORRRYYYYYY!!!!!!!
