United's CEO hints the airline could avoid layoffs if employees are willing to take huge cuts in their work hours instead
United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby said on Wednesday that the airline could avoid layoffs of front-line workers if they agreed to reduced work hours until the economic crisis brought on by the coronavirus ends.

Kirby said in an appearance on CNBC that the airline was working with labor unions to try and reach an agreement.

The airline has previously said it would need to be "smaller" on the other side of the downturn, and that "at least" 30% of management and administrative workers would be cut. It was not clear whether those workers would be included in a potential plan to avoid layoffs.

God luck with that. The union parasites would rather see the company fold rather than stop parasiting.

Why did he take the bailout money then if he is planning to layoff his employees or cut their hours ? You can't have both at the same time.

They think the companies have unlimited funds. They have no concept of math.
