It looks to me that Jazz is undercutting Sky Regional and NOT the other way around ...
Aside from the obvious varying degrees of probable flexibility at a larger operation why work at Jazz??

Seems like sour grapes on Jazz's end..

Jazz start wage 34.50/hr vs upwards of 40/ HR. Also from what I hear OT kicks in at jazz after 85 hours. Also, no two tiered pay schedule at one company..

Not limited to retired mainline of course. Circumstance (company closure) brought me there at 53 a while back, not there anymore.

A few other non mainline high profile types there, or were there, as well.

Flame away if you must.
