Oh yeah those "multiple opportunitys to leave" were opportunities for multiple furloughs, so yeah keep on resenting the senior guys, see how that works for you.
P.S. Many of us spent more than half a decade in the right seat, with no upgrade on the horizon, so KMA.
It's ignorant to think that you can and always will be a Captain once upgraded. We have a huge 50 seat operation that can and will go away. Nothing says it won't be slashed and a portion of our pilot group downgraded. I'd rather secure gains in all areas not just where it benefits me. You're not going to garner any support for sitting 5 years in the right seat when most our guys spent nearly a decade.

That makes me go "hmmmm". Is SGU planning on long-term financial difficulties and are offering us a percentage of a loss in lieu of hourly raises? I fell for the Bro FO raise so I'm now suspicious of anything they offer other than cash on the barrel-head.

Hmmmmn,
Lesson learned, anything that doesn't hit your paycheck every two week is a Unicorn-Sasquatch hybrid mix. Second lesson, anything that comes out of SAPA/SGU has boobietrapped levers all over it. No trust but verify, it's now "Show Me the Money MFer"

Weeding pilots out though training huh? I seem to remember another regional blatantly criticized on this forum for doing the same thing.

And in today's market they will pay the full boat plus retention and will even offer the kitchen sink by the end of summer. Watching them squirm is funny.
They threw away the hiring standards bar and included the "has a pulse and can fog a mirror" standard. They threw tidbits to the existing pilots and Hail Maryed the potential newhire crew. After being here for as long as I have, this is the Mormon equivalent of running around in the desert waving their arms and screaming "the sky is falling, the sky is falling"
If there ever was an opportunity to cornhole them back for the last ten years it's now, this offer is proof.

And I agree which is why it should be rejected by a land slide. If they can offer at a minimum $6 but possibly $10 an hr over the current yr 1 rate they can most definitely offer more than the $.50-$1HR for the rest of the lot.

Eat your own words son. Sounds like the bar is being lowered as we speak, but you're too caught up in your own narcissism to notice.
