Trash-Talking by Northwest Airlines

Images_65 Images_67 Flight attendants at Northwest Airlines are, of course, preparing to strike.  Northwest, an ever-sensitive employer, has prepared a booklet for the flight attendants on how to cope with job loss. 

A list of 101 money-saving ideas suggests they ask friends and family for hand-me-down clothes or ask a doctor for free samples of their prescription drugs.  Idea No. 46 - "Don't be shy about pulling something you like out of the garbage."  Also included is an advertisment for a real estate agent, in case laid-off workers need to sell their homes, and tips on how to keep a positive attitude after losing a job.

The above is from Zachary Franz of the Bismarck Tribune.

All's fair in love and labor strife, I suppose.
