If the business is not sustainable, it's not sustainable. In the wild Delta Airlines woulda got wiped out or switched up the business model and started selling cookies.

They're really just slowing down innovation in the field. Competition can be a great thing.

Delta Air Lines is asking its employees to volunteer to work in their understaffed airport lounges without pay.

“Just come to the ATL airport for a few hours to help with cleaning, wiping tables, running food, restocking food buffets, etc,” the company said in an internal message to employees, adding that they should be dressed in business casual with black pants and white shirts. The company would supply the volunteers with aprons.

The company said volunteers would be needed “at all times,” noting that airport lounges are 115 workers short.

“Ideally we’ll be working each week to fill volunteer slots for the following week,” the company said.

The message, which notes that employees won't receive any pay for staffing the lounges, was sent to salaried workers, managers, and headquarters employees.

“We have asked Atlanta-based, salaried employees to volunteer in our Atlanta Delta Sky Clubs to help meet the rapid, recent increases in customer volumes and ensure that our teams continuously deliver the elevated club experiences our customers have come to expect,” the airline said in a statement shortly after the news it was seeking the volunteers was reported.

The story comes as employers across the country struggle to fill vacancies as many potential workers continue to sit out of the labor market amid pandemic fears and generous unemployment benefits. The travel and hospitality industries have been especially hard-hit by the lack of workers, with people becoming more comfortable traveling as the vaccination drive spreads across the country.

President Joe Biden on Monday signaled his support for states to return to a pre-pandemic unemployment system, encouraging people to take work as soon as they find a “suitable job.”

"We're going to make it clear that anyone collecting unemployment who is offered a suitable job must take the job or lose their unemployment benefits," Biden said at the White House.

"I know there's been a lot of discussion since Friday's report that people are being paid to stay home rather than go to work,” the president added. "Well, we don't see much evidence of that. That is a major factor. We don't see that, look, it's easy to say, the line has been, because of the generous unemployment benefits, that it's a major factor in labor shortages."

Mop a floor, slip and fall, cash them checks....



What they need to do is offer free flights for those that do volunteer. Go back to bartering goods and services like the Stone Age...

americans are so cucked by employers

but i dunno, this situation might of set off a light bulb in some workers heads. because they're literately saying in articles now that they might have to raise wages to get people back to work. now... we'll see if that actually happens but i've never seen that mentioned in america before. regardless this moment now is the most leverage any millennial or gen z will ever have with employers. abuse the hell out of it. take them for all you can, this is rare.
We ain’t gon find out until September when they suppose to end pandemic unemployment insurance. Maybe at first mfkas ain’t gon come back but give it two weeks with people ain’t seeing no income, they gon crash the career section on the company website..

The working class is so stupid I’m sure people will show up to work for free too. I know so many working class who have loyalty to a job that can careless about them.



Makes me so mad when people do that.

They are taking advantage of people's kindness.

All the executive pay is in their financials.

Some employee should just email back to everyone the list of their pay.

It sounds crazy but when i was at UPS they did this every year with corporate during the holiday season


They would go so far as to fly corporate members to troubled areas, put them up in hotels and then make them work like two shifts in the hubs... taking them away from family and everything for like 2 weeks

No extra pay

Slapped for ignoring that there are slaves out there today. They likely have it harder too. Just don't look like you.

incompetent company that only exists because of American tax dollars.

Craziest thing is that Delta is framing it as a choice, but realistically your job might be on the line if you don't volunteer. We know how it goes

Muthafu*kas be like "I don't like to call in sick". I tell anyone I work with that if you die today, they will be interviewing for your job within a week. n*gga I call in if I sneeze too hard. That's what I got all the sick days accumulated for.

To be real, I'm not even mad at Delta. This wouldn't be a thing if they didn't think employees would sign up and work for free.

If people are dumb enough and willing to succumb to the pressure of facing consequences for not volunteering or rejecting an offer, then so be it.

We all have a choice, we can work for ourselves, or we can work for someone else. Working for someone else, has and will always come with conditions.

Nature of the beast.
