You got it buddy! You understand. We're coming and it's coming in force. The time is now to take action. Although I don't believe in a staple, it may be necessary (I say this with hesitation). I think the jets should come to mainline at the mainline rates established in the contract. I would prefer to give preferential hiring, but keep the same DAL standards intact. Everyone has to interview. If you pass the test, you keep the job and start as a first year FO. Simple as that. If not, you're out. Do not accept lowering the bar. Keep the standards high.
