"Joe Marquardt, 50, left a 17-year career at Northwest Airlines last year for Emirates, as the Minnesota-based carrier phased out the DC-9 jets he flew.

He already had lost one-third of his salary in pay cuts, Marquardt said, and he faced a demotion to a smaller plane, which would mean another pay reduction.

"It got to the point where we couldn't keep the house," Marquardt said."

Seriously, 17 years at NWA and you couldn't pay off your house before then? If anyone else is in this situation, buy the Rich Dad Poor Dad book series and consult a financial advisor.
