Hmmmm.....I've got your answer....what diff does it make bro ? Unless you are acknowledging that it does make a difference?

Is that you Tailhooka? Time to go back to the reservation/enclave/house/commune that you've wandered from.

I might also ask....how old are you? Petulant much?

As asked before by others....time to get this post back on track.....incite all you want ,you'll be doing it in an echo chamber
No not me Bucky. But it does matter since you’re the one who made a big deal about my DOH just prior to slandering me on hypotheticals. You need to come clean or have zero credibility. I think you’re junior. Been here not too long and a real treat to be around. So man up boy blunder or zip it jr. Easy as pie.

And BTW this thread is on track. Actually we’ve had a great discussion when you ignore your trolling asswipe remarks while trying to be someone you are not or will never be.

I have lurked around for years, pretty much when the World Wide Web became useful (no more paper applications; a plus) - never posted or signed up, obviously, until now.
Do I acknowledge that date of hire makes a difference? Of course not. The only thing I acknowledge is that you owe someone an apology for your childish reaction to someone who was entering only their opinion on the matter. Tailhookah didn't attack you personally, he didn't insult any of your family members. He didn't insult your intelligence yet you chose to be rude in your response. Be civil - you may get further in life.

How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie is a good read.

I don't want a DB pension, but it would be nice to have some kind of bridge tax deferred/advantaged retirement help. What I would even prefer to that would be a really good retiree medical plan. That makes the saved dollars go much further anyway.

IMHO, the big mistake was opening profit sharing to anyone not on the seniority list at the time. WE paid for that, and EVERYONE gets it, yet act offended if we want any restoration. No hypocrisy in there.... naaaaah.

Fire away.


Money grab my ass.

The profit sharing was a way to restore value to all careers when the company recovers. Almost all companies do this during bankruptcy to get concessions needed to restructure. Either profit sharing or a snap back triggered by some goal achieved.

At the time the concept of employees recovering with the company was not very common. It worked out well for us and what we negotiated with the claim stock and profit sharing was almost unprecedented.

Exclamation Severe thread drift

The previous 20 posts, discussing the merits of health care systems in various countries, have nothing to do with the Delta MEC, and have been moved to a new thread in “Hangar Talk”.
