I can't wait to see mnsalty and pushingtin go at it about something... What do you guys think about religion? đź‘€
do u think its "Minnesota Salty" ? Is that like the opposite end of the "minn-uhh-sohhhh-tah nice' spectrum? I prefer Michigan strongly. Its just too bad what AZO and Gretchen have done

I don’t. I think the FAA will pay us all to sit at work doing nothing, like they have a loooooong history of doing such as centers where people don’t even get a class for almost a year.
Doesn't every center have at least a baker's dozen "controllers" who have been hiding out in cubicles for literally years waiting for their retirement date? Its always some diferent story. Had a nervous breakdown or whatever. cha-ching many capped out . When you print the money there is an endless supply! TMU is only one step down from this anyway and thats seen as a real job lolol

I spent time there. MN nice isn’t a real thing, probably a marketing ploy to get people to visit the frozen wasteland. Crystal must be rough!

I'm pretty sure I heard a rumor they're getting paid this time around. But, a lot of them (I hear) are old and retired and probably more "At risk" than the controllers they'd be training. I wouldn't know, my level 4 tower doesn't have contractors.
Rumor is false. I'm a contractor collecting unemployment and that sweet, sweet $600 extra a week. Don't let us come back, please.
I can't speak for the old boys though. They may not be eligible if they're collecting retirement.

I'll come back when I have to though. This job is cush even though the pay is meh and no good chances of raises.

What are you, an RPO? Apply to the next open controller bid. We’ve had several RPOs from my facility get picked up over the past year.

It’s great we have a RPO on here, as the other guy said apply for the next open bid. You could get ORD out of the box or at the very least ERR there within a year.

I hope you’re right; but why do you all think paying ~2000 people to sit at home doing nothing and getting paid is sustainable for any length of time?
I'm making $300 a week as a virtual academy student...I'm definitely not breaking the bank. In other news, virtual basics sucked.

What amounts to the “fuck trainees” attitude from some people on this site is getting old. I’m sure you would feel way differently if you were in your first or second year of training, making 1/3 of CPC pay, while having at least a 3+ month delay on top of the already slow training process. It’s also pretty funny that a lot of the people throwing out the “YoU sHoUlD bE gRaTeFuL tO bE sItTiNg At HoMe GeTtInG pAiD, yOuRe LuCkY yOuRe NoT gEtTiNg FuRlOuGhEd” lines are the same people bitching about not getting hazard pay.
I’m not bitching about hazard pay, it took my 6 years to get in, then spent 4 at a low level before bidding and certifying at A80. No one wants to hear a sob story shut the fuck up and certify. It’s hard and sucks we all go thru shit and you should be happy to get a paycheck. I coulda had a raise if it weren’t for a shutdown last year and coulda been in 3 years earlier if it wasn’t for sequester. But who fucking cares? Nobody and that’s ok cause we are all dealing with shit constantly. I can’t wait to see how many trainees bitch about getting back then wash. Dirty.

You guys need to calm down before your facreps see this!!!
Some Facreps can’t read let alone comprehend
