The end of Northwest?

At this point, another strike vote is pretty much like bayoneting the survivors, isn't it?

There is an old saying in the Labor Movement, "If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything". If the pilots strike Northwest will fall. But at a certain point why save a job that can't pay your bills? If the company gains their way what standard of living will the employess have? 20-50% lower pay, reduced or eliminated pension benfits, drastically more expensive health care, for what? So the executives can continue to pay themselves outrageous salaries? Free Marketeers look at the airline industry as the natural result of unfetterd capitalism and economic Darwinism. Not very pretty and very hard on the people who work and strive for a better life and the "American Dream" only to see it snatched away!
