2. Longevity
3. Career expectations

So longevity, or date of hire, is a consideration.
Longevity and date of hire are not interchangeable terms. One can easily have many years since they were hired and only a few of them be active (ex: UAL guys that have been furloughed twice). There seems to be much confusion over this. Longevity for pay purposes is contract specific.
