You really believe that a banded payscale will compare to THAT? I would be interested in reading your thesis to support that position.

Now. As far as the OP, I agree 717%. That post was absolutely spot on. When we had profit sharing and the company didn't have to worry about payout, it was no big deal. Now that they DO have to worry about paying us a little jenga.. it is. Not my problem, and if they want to "codify" that pay, it better be at a premium, and not dollar for dollar.

You have to wonder how he could even conceive of the 20% number. For that to be true the average pilot would have to spend 72 days a year in non recurrent training and pay banding would have to eliminate every single day of that for every single pilot.
