A matter of pay


I am a news freak and read everything I can get my hands on.

One current issue is the investigation into the Continental flight that crashed earlier this year. One thing that came out is that the pilot's annual salary was $16,000 a year and how you don't get the best people for that price.

If someone is working the Front Desk making $13 an hour their annual salary is $27,040 over $10,000 a year more than a full time airline pilot. Amazing.

$13 X 40 = $520 a week. $520 X 52 Weeks = $27,040.

That pilot killed 50 passengers.

Makes you want to rent a car next time.
