First the good news: Things are looking up at United. They announced yesterday that they plan to hire 2,000 flight attendants, the first hires since 9/11.
Now the bad news: Starting flight attendants working a normal 75 hour/month schedule will make about $16,000. You cannot live in Chicago or Washington, DC, on $16,000 in case you were wondering.
But don’t worry, they’ll be passing the savings on to you.
