Personally, I'd rather have a 1,000 good paying jobs flying planes than 2,000 shitty ones!!! IMHO

someone gives them a call asking to slow down some hirings, I guess it may have some impact, for sure if you are waiting for a job in some seniority based airline, it could make the difference big time
isn't separate businesses colluding against potential employees illegal? That sounds greasy AF.
Really?? Sounds like pilots here colluding against employers. A CP is just doing his job trying to keep fully staffed. A large carrier like Jazz may not have a clue how they are effecting a company. If asked I'd try and accommodate a company that called and asked if I could hold off, not a sure thing but...... Karma is a ....

I know someone who got stuck in the "pool" in a similar manner. The "pool" was C3000 and it was 2001. Turned out to not be such a bad thing. #noteveryonelikes the sandbox

I disagree. If I as an employee was meeting all of your responsibilities with notice, contract fulfillment etc there would be hell to pay if my boss or CP was blocking my progression up the ladder. Seniority is everything.

Or perhaps the small 703 company has no bond and said pilot said he'd stay for 2 years on a handshake and now 1 year in he is trying to leave...

A job is a job not a charity, if you have better prospects you should take them. Would that same business continue to employ you based on that handshake if it were going bankrupt? I doubt it.

You wave that huge red flag loudly and proudly! Proclaim from the mountaintops "I am the reason we all have bonds! You're welcome!".

TC is looking out for the public's interests, not what pilots think will make their schedules include the most days off. Based on my companies pairings I can think of very few duty days that will need to be changed, and working a 8-9 day month of transcontinental turns would still be possible. Changes to augmentation on longer flights should increase pilot requirements substantially.

I don't share your faith on the benevolence of TC and their Wisdom. They are a department Of, By and For the airlines. When the needed shift finally comes, I won't count on them to get it right.

I would assert that working 14 hours days is reasonable in the right conditions: limited days per month, day flying, no sleep schedule shift, etc. People sitting in the seat with their opinions mean more to me than someone who has never worked in the industry, flying a desk.
